When Bad jumps off stage to dance with a fan, he hurriedly puts his guitar back on to continue the song. The guitar strap is twisted, but in the rest of the shots it is straightened out again.

Bad is driving down the road in the '78 Suburban that has old faded paint. When it is rolled down the hill, it has suddenly been freshly painted exactly like it appears in its next scene, which occurred after repairs had supposedly been made. The sequence of filming was apparently to wait until the all other scenes had been made using the Suburban and then rolling it down the hill.

When Blake re-enters the stage at the bowling center, he puts his hat on loosely with the brim tilted to the front. A second later in the following shot, his hat is on tightly, with the brim tilted to the rear.

During the scene where Tommy meets Bad at the restaurant and Tommy has a bottle of Smart Water filled with whiskey you can see the bottle changing positions between each cut away, or see how it was moved between each take.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Blake enters the rear entrance of the open air venue in Phoenix, reflections of the camera operator are visible in the red truck. When Blake and Tommy talk in the outside after the bar scene, reflections of the camera team are visible in Blake's sunglasses.

Errors in geography 

When Bad and Wayne are out fishing, as the camera draws back for a long shot, you can see mountain tops in the upper left hand corner of the screen just above the tops of the trees. There are no such mountains anywhere around Houston.

The Suburban is stated to be a 1978 model, but the body side moldings have a yellow/gold painted insert which was only available for one model year, "1977".

Revealing mistakes 

It is obvious the pee bottle emptying shot was made prior to the crane shot of Bad parking at the bowling alley, as the puddle from that shot is evident next to the parking spot as he pulls in.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Character error 

In an act of contrition Bad turns over the large song royalty check he has just received to Jean Craddock admonishing her to use it for her son's future. However, as it would have undoubtedly been made out to his name she would have been unable to cash it.
