One of the last films to show the Twin Towers of the original World Trade Center, they're visible four times throughout the film. Three of those appearances also show the adjacent forty-story WTC Building 7, which was not constructed until 1987, though the film takes place in 1983.

When Dice talks to Billie about his future as her producer, a drink is in his hand. He takes a sip, and lays it down in a position on his chest where any liquid in the cup would have spilled out. Then he keeps drinking, as if there still was liquid in the cup.

After Billie kisses the music sheet, the pencil in front of it is lying so that you can see the brand name on the side of it. When Dice goes back later, the pencil is yellow and the writing is gone.

Errors in geography 

Set in New York City, but obvious Toronto landmarks (most noticeably the CN Tower and the Sky Dome) are in the background of several shots.

Factual errors 

Dice mentions to Billie that one of his favorites is Quincy Jones, citing his Grammys and Oscars. This scene takes place in 1983. To that point, Jones had been nominated for seven Academy Awards, but had never won one. And the only award from the Academy that he has ever won to this day was the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award which he received in 1994.

Plot holes 

When Billie and Dice are in the limo, Dice mimics what Rafael said to Billie at the party. Dice was off in the crowd then, not with them.
