Corrected entry: When Vincent and Justin run away from the store after having stolen some stuff, Barry is first out the door chasing them, followed by Rob who stops to pick up the skateboard they drop behind. In the next shot, just outside the door and before they've even reached the corner, Rob is ahead and Barry's a good bit behind. (00:50:35)

Correction: Rob could have been running faster than Barry, considering Barry was overweight.

Corrected entry: There is a scene where John Cusack is speaking to the camera about the top 5 things he misses about his girlfriend. As he counts down the list, he is walking between huge steel girders. Check the buildings in the background. Through each shot in that scene, he is walking by the same 2 girders. (01:19:45)

Correction: Actually, he's just sort of hanging out amongst the girders (looks like a bridge across the Chicago River) and walking back and forth, so it makes sense that the buildings aren't changing.

Corrected entry: In the very first scene, when Cusack is listening through the headphones, his girlfriend pulls out the plug to the headphones. The music stops, but it should have kept playing through the speakers.

Correction: Some systems can be set up like that. Alternatively, because he lives in an apartment, he might disconnect his speakers and only listen through headphones.

Corrected entry: When Rob has just broken up with Laura he lists his top 5 breakup in chronological order and says: Alison Ashmore, Penny Hardwick, Jackie Alden, Charlie Nicholson, and Sarah Kendrew. Then when he has flashbacks of them all, 1&2 are in order, but then he lists Charlie at 3 and Sarah at 4, leaving Jackie for 5. The order went from 12345 to 12453.

Correction: He also mentions that he would rather not get into the story of why he and Charlie broke up at the time her name came up on the list.

Continuity mistake: When John Cusack is on the phone to Catherine Zeta Jones he enquires about her marital status. When she responds she is holding the phone in her left hand with a large ring on her ring finger. Cutting away and then back the phone is now in her right hand but the ring has jumped to the ring finger on that hand also. There is now no ring on her left hand. (01:08:15)

Rob Gordon: What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands, of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?
