City Hall

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Al Pacino is getting dressed for a dinner while talking to one of his aids. He addresses the aide and is seen in a dressing gown with his hair all tousled and untidy. He turns away from the camera, looks in the mirror, and turns back to camera. Miraculously his hair is now tidy as can be, with not a hair out of place!

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the film when all of the characters are watching a production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel. Al Pacino and Danny Aiello have a word outside during this. We hear through the doors that the song being sung is "If I Loved You." This song is sung at the very beginning of the production, yet people begin to file out for intermission directly thereafter. They got to the middle of the production pretty quickly.

Factual error: We see John Cusack enter City Hall and turn right past the guard to meet Pacino, the Mayor in his office. In reality in New York's City Hall, the City Council occupies the right side of the building and the Mayor occupies the left side of the building.

Trivia: Does anyone else notice the parallels between this movie and The Devil's Advocate? They both have Al Pacino running New York City and his "right hand man" is named Kevin.
