Errors in geography 

The MySpace gig takes place far enough away that George and Ira take a private plane. At the end of scene, he gets two girls to go back to his place. But at the end of those scenes the girls leave on their own, apparently left to their own resources to get back.

Factual errors 

Clarke invites Ira and George to watch the football finals from Australia, in a scene taking place in December. Australian football finals are played in September. In case of play-offs they may drag out into early October, but no later.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the kitchen/medicine scene, in the last part of the scene, someone can be seen moving outside the window. George mentions his workers and later in the movie we see more evidence that he has lots of servants and people working for him, so the person outside the window was probably a servant.
