Continuity mistake: When the actor from Hard Copy is shown, the clock in the background never changes from 4:00 despite many cut scenes to him.

Factual error: During her performance in Albertville Olympics, when her skates are shown closely, it's clear that she is skating on Edea Ice Fly with simply coloured brown, distinctive to the model, silver heel. The rest of the model is impossible to mix with other skates. The model was not yet invented in 1992. (00:43:20)

LaVona Golden: I didn't swear, you cunt.

New this month Question: Did people actually care about figure skating? I wasn't alive when this happened, but apparently it was one of the biggest sporting controversies of all time. Well I find that quite hard to believe, since before this movie came out, I'd never heard anyone talk about figure skating, I barely even knew what it was. Was figure skating ever actually a big thing, or do people just like controversy?

New this month Answer: It used to be a lot more popular. The Harding/Kerrigan Winter Olympic figure skating competition was the 6th highest rated program in TV history as of 1994, with 48.5 million viewers, no doubt helped by the controversy. It's slowly declined over time - from 1998 to 2018 viewing figures for the US championships declined by 1/3. Opinions about its loss of appeal range from a change in the scoring (used to be judges rating out of 6.0, now it's a more complicated points system), to a lack of "star power", with recognisable names grabbing people's attention. In the UK at least, skater team Torville and Dean were household names for a long time, but I'd imagine a lot of people would struggle to think of skaters with that level of popular recognition nowadays. That said, viewing figures for the 2018 US championships were 60% up on 2017, and membership of the US figure skating organization has risen for the last four years - these things wax and wane like any other.
