Revealing Mistakes While Bad opens the Suburban's driver's door while talking to Jean, the door mirror is "fogged over" to prevent the crew and equipment from being visible in the mirror.
Continuity The first time Bad leaves Jean's house, the left front fender of the Suburban says "Silverado", the second time he leaves Jean's house, after the roll over, it says "Scottsdale" which means they used at least two trucks.
Continuity 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.
Continuity 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.
Continuity During establishing a phone call to his long-lost Son, Bad puts telephone into his right hand; after the cut, the phone is in his left hand, where it stays till the ending of the scene.
Continuity In the scene where the Suburban crashes it rolls over a fence. In the next shot the fence disappears.
Continuity When the sound check before the Phoenix concert, the earpiece on Bear's (the sound tech) head switches sides at least twice.
Crew/Equipment Visible During 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 In the scene where 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.
