Factual error: One of Angel's lyrics (in "Today For You, Tomorrow For Me) refers to the movie "Thelma and Louise." Rent (the movie) is set in 1989-90. "Thelma and Louise" was released in 1991.[This was caused when they did the move from Broadway to the screen. What happened was the stage show did not specify the year. So when they adapted the stage show to the movie, they didn't check the references. Plus it just sounds cool. Added info by Todd Loewen] (00:28:25)K.C. Sierra
Factual error: During a pan over midtown between scenes, the camera shows the Metlife building with the Metlife logo. However, in 1989 the Metlife building still had the Pan-Am logo on it. It was not changed until 1991.
