Other mistake: In Tiffany's converted garage, Tiffany says she's thinking of putting in a ballet bar, but there's one there already right next to the big mirror, where it's supposed to be.
Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: David O. Russell
Starring: Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence
Pat and Tiffany score horribly on the dance competition, but it doesn't matter because their lousy score was enough to win the Eagles bet. Nikki comes to the competition, much to Tiffany's surprise, and as Pat goes to talk to her, Tiffany storms out. Pat whispers something in Nikki's ear and they part on good terms. Pat catches up to Tiffany and gives her a letter he wrote to her. The letter says that Pat knew Tiffany wrote Nikki's letter, but Pat doesn't care and that he loves her. They kiss.
Pat Sr.: Let me tell you, I know you don't want to listen to your father, I didn't listen to mine, and I am telling you you gotta pay attention this time. When life reaches out with a woman like this it's a sin if you don't reach back, I'm telling you its a sin if you don't reach back! It'll haunt you the rest of your days like a curse. You're facing a big challenge in your life right now at this very moment, right here. That girl loves you she really really loves you. I don't know if Nicky ever did, but she sure as shit doesn't right now. So don't fuck this up.
Trivia: When Tiffany and Pat get into the fight in the diner and then stop in front of the movie theater, take a look at the marquee. The movie playing is 2008's "The Midnight Meat Train", which actually stars Bradley Cooper.
Question: Why were Pat, Tiffany and all the others so happy when they lost the dance competition? I just didn't understand.

Chosen answer: Their score was pretty bad, but just good enough to win the bet. Getting the money was the important part - they didn't really expect to win the competition.
