Continuity mistake: When they are preparing for the concert, the girls are setting up stuff on both sides of the entrance door (inside and outside). In all shots, the credit card stickers are in the same place, in the left corner of the right door, whereas they should switch sides for the inside and outside shots. It's most noticeable because of the huge Amex sticker on the right.

Trivia

Just after Lucas tells Joe he's a 'superb manager', Joe drags him off to beat him up in his office. When he takes him into the back, you see a girl standing in the doorway. She is the same girl you see when Mark and AJ enter the store at the beginning. Her character was called Lily and she was cut out of the film. Her name is also still in the credits.
