Grosse Pointe Blank

Character mistake: Debbie is doing an "All 80s weekend" on her radio show, and the film's soundtrack is based on exactly the same idea. Debbie plays 'Rudie Can't Fail' by The Clash. This is from the London Calling album, which was released right at the end on 1979 in most countries. The song was never released as a single in any year, so it's definitely a 70s song. What's interesting abut this mistake is that the soundtrack was selected by former Clash lead singer Joe Strummer.

Continuity mistake: At the high school reunion dance, Tracy hands Martin her baby son. When she starts to hand him over, the baby is facing her, but in the next shot, when Martin reaches out to take it off her, the baby has turned round and is now magically facing HIM.
