Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Chris and his band go to the concert, they are in the front standing next to the stage. However, when the camera cuts to show the entire audience, different people are standing where Chris and his band were. From that view, Chris and his band are not even in the audience.
Factual error: In the opening credits, a new model Chevy S-10 is shown. That body style wasn't out till the mid 90's.
Continuity mistake: When Steel Dragon's original singer is being fired watch the amount of hair lying in front of his left shoulder change from shot to shot.
Trivia: When the credits are rolling on the film, they show outtakes from filming the movie. In one of them, they are getting ready to shoot a concert scene, and when they yell "Action" to cue the music, instead of a Steel Dragon song coming up, they play a trick on Mark Wahlberg and play "Good Vibrations" from Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. Pretty funny to see the look on Mark's face.
Chris: You know, I'm just a regular guy who grew up with the posters of these guys on my wall... and now I'm one of them! That's right, I'm standing here, living proof that if you work hard enough, and you want it bad enough... dreams do come true. So follow your dreams.
Emily: Oh no no... I could make you a pair of those. But first you gotta tell me what you shove in there to make people think you're a guy.
Mats, Steel Dragon Road Manager: Whatever twirls your beanie baby.
Question: Does anyone know how old Chris is meant to be in the film?
Question: Who plays the piano background music during the car scene after Chris was kicked out of his band, when Chris and Emily are talking and she's telling him maybe it's a sign to start writing your own songs?
