Continuity mistake: In the scene where Effie sings "Curtis, this time Effie's gonna win", Curtis turns his head a little to his left when Effie sings "win" at his face. But at the next shot, camera behind Curtis, Curtis' head is slightly turned to his right. (01:52:35)

Audio problem: When they are playing "Patience" for Curtis, he is holding a drink in his hand. After he shuts the music off, when he moves the hand holding the drink, you can hear ice clinking in the glass. However, you can plainly see that there is no ice in his drink. This happens a couple times in the scene.

Factual error: While they're eating dinner, Deena says "I can't believe this is happening" to which Curtis says "you made it happen! you are the queen of Disco!" The error here is that Diana Ross didn't sing disco until after she went solo, in 1970. (01:26:05)

Curtis Taylor Jr.: Who was the first artist to sing "Hound Dog"?
C.C. White: Elvis Presley.
Curtis Taylor Jr.: Big Mama Thorton. She had the number-one single on the R&B charts, but the white stations wouldn't play it, because to them it was just another race record.
