Continuity mistake: As the New Main Street Singers are performing their second song at the show, you can see Parker Posey pretend to use her guitar as a shotgun. The strap for the guitar drops from her shoulder down to her right forearm when she does this. When the shot changes the strap is back up over her shoulder. (01:01:40)

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan Steinbloom is introducing Mitch and Mickey at the concert, he has the blue paper in his right hand and it's lifted up to around his chest. However, when we see a shot of him from behind, both hands are by his sides. Immediately when the shot changes to show him from the front, his hand is at his chest again. (01:09:55)

Continuity mistake: In addition to the son of the dead guy's stuff jumping from disorganized to organized and back again, at the beginning his pen is seen sitting diagonally on top of his paper. But when he goes to organize it, he slides it onto the paper from the left, meaning it suddenly jumped onto the desk. There's also what appears to be a coin purse in a box which goes from disorganized to organized and back again, even though he never touches it.

Terry Bohner: This is not an occult science. This is not one of those crazy systems of divination and astrology. That stuff's hooey, and you've got to have a screw loose to go in for that sort of thing. Our beliefs are fairly commonplace and simple to understand. Humankind is simply materialized color operating on the 49th vibration. You would make that conclusion walking down the street or going to the store.
