Factual error: In the shot of the front of the National Gallery as the disc jockeys walk down the stairs towards the camera, modern-day surveillance cameras are visible on curved poles to the left and right of the main frontage. (00:52:30)

Revealing mistake: As the boat is in its final minutes, two of the crew are shown swimming across the deck to get to the dry part. But once they've climbed up, their clothes are still dry.

More quotes from The Boat That Rocked

Question: When the boat first starts sinking, some nameless crew members are shown trying to sort things out. But I don't remember them appearing again, even when the DJs were being rescued. Did they drown?

Josman

Chosen answer: They can be seen in a couple of long shots of the ship's prow as the DJs shelter there. It's reasonable to assume, given that they were present when the rescue flotilla arrived, that they were picked up as well, just off-screen while the film focused on the main characters.
