Factual error: When the boys go to the radio show in CA, the DJ says to the listeners to keep Saturday and Sunday, August 20th and 21st  open. The 20th and 21st of August 1964 were a Thursday and a Friday.
Factual error: Several times during the film a Zildjian stencil logo can be seen on the bottom of a cymbal. Zildjian did not start applying logos until the 1970s.
Trivia: Throughout the entire movie, no one ever says the bass player's name. Even in the credits, he is listed as T.B. Player and The Bass Player.
Trivia: Another Beatles parallel in the film: There's a scene where you see the band members play on stage and Mr. White is watching them (while moving his head along with the music). There's a famous picture of Brian Epstein (Beatles' mythological manager) doing the exact same thing on The Beatles' famous Shea Stadium concert.
Mr. White: You guys look great in gold, have I told you that?
Lenny Haise: Here's the thing, we're not "The Wonders" right now, we're "Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters."
Lenny: "Skitch", how did we get here?
Guy: I led you here, sir, for I am Spartacus.
Question: Are the characters in this movie based on actual people? Is it a true story or a fictional story that was entirely possible?
Question: Does anyone know where I can get a transcript of this movie? Also, does anyone know if the song we hear in the movie is the original?
