Anachronisms 

The video for Pop Goes My Heart is given a year of 1984, but the top keyboard being played was the Roland D-50, which did not come out until 1987.

In the videoclip featuring Alex Fletcher in "Pop goes my heart" an automated infusion pump system is visible. These kind of intravenous drug administration systems weren't yet available in 1984.

Another instrument anachronism: In the video for 'Pop Goes My Heart', the bassist is shown playing a Steinberger Synapse series bass guitar. While aesthetically somewhat similar to Steinberger models in the 1980s, the Synapse line wasn't released until the 2000s. (Also of note: he's playing a right-handed bass left-handed, but this is somewhat common considering that many models of guitar are and have been unavailable left-handed.)

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

There is a scene where Alex and Sophie are walking to the coffee shop. The camera is traveling behind Sophie and Alex but you can clearly see that the audio is not synchronized with the movement of Alex' lips.

Right when Sophie rearranges the furniture on Alex's apartment, when he says "much better" Sophie smiles at him in a very pleased way and keeps smiling but as the scene goes on the shot changes showing her so concentrated writing, which she was not doing nothing of that at all.

During Sophie's first visit to Alex' apartment, while she is using the spray bottle on the cactus, she is holding the spray bottle in her right hand with her first two fingers on the "trigger". In the next shot, she has the side of the first pad of her index finger in her mouth. Holding the bottle in this way, she could not have hit the cactus with the inside of her finger. When she returns for the second visit, a bandage is on the second pad of her index finger.

Revealing mistakes 

When Alex and Cora are singing 'Way Back Into Love' at the concert, there is a shot of Chris and his daughter in the audience, and they turn to look at each other and smile. The video of this clip has been 'reversed' (it is playing backwards); you can tell by watching the people clapping behind them, and the daughter's hair as she turns her head.

Sophie and the lady with Chris at the restaurant change clothes to make Sophie look better for Sloan. The Lady is about 6" taller than Sophie but both sets of clothing fit them both perfectly.
