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)
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)
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.
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.
Factual error: When John Cusack puts Springsteen on his LP-player, he places the needle at the start of the record. The song that plays is the studio version of "The River." Therefore, the album has to be "The River," which is a double album, but "The River" is not at the start of either of the two LPs, but is the last song on LP #1. (00:18:10)
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?
