Grosse Pointe Blank

Factual error: John Cusack arrives in Grosse Pointe, Michigan and drives through the downtown area while we hear Minnie Driver's voice-over. He not only passes some storefronts at least twice, but one of the storefronts has a large yellow and brown awning reading "Monrovia Beauty Supply," which is located in Monrovia, California.

Factual error: In the scene at the Cuppa Joe, it's a span of 3 minutes and 5 seconds from when the server takes their order to when she's walking back to the table with the food - that's not enough time for an order of pancakes to even finish cooking, let alone for all of those ingredients to be cooked and plated.

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.

Question: Grocer contacts the G-men to tell them that Blank is arriving by plane. Is that his own car he is driving around town, or are we to assume that he rented a car exactly like his own? If it is his car, how did it get there if he flew?

Answer: Given that Blank and Grocer both drive identical black Lincoln Town Cars throughout the film for some reason, that would be a reasonable assumption that they would also hire the same car model wherever they go.
