    • TRIVIA: When Jackson Nasar blows up a floor Kay, Nikki and Tasha's faces all get dirty except for Quick's.

    • TRIVIA: When Nikki sets off an explosive you can see that the flame that shoots out the window was computer generated.

    • GOOF: When Nikki is on the fifth floor shooting at members of the Mad Dog Militia she puts at least three bullet in the number 5 sign but when we see a closer shot of the number 5 sign there's no bullet holes in it.

    • GOOF: When Tasha is on the phone with Brad Cliff's manager she has the phone in her left hand to her left ear then in the next shot it's in her right hand to her right ear and in the shot after that it's back to being in her left hand to her left ear.

    • GOOF: Where could Jackson Nasar have gotten the cardboard cut-out of Val in a bikini?

    • NITPICK: When V.I.P. go to get hot dogs Nikki says "Sure, let's just call Vallery Irons. I'm sure she's not busy" then she sees Val and says "Vallery Irons?" and Quick says "Okay, okay it was a dumb idea don't rub it in". But it was Nikki's idea to call Vallery Irons so Quick should of been the one to say "Vallery Irons?" and Nikki should of been the one to say "Okay, okay it was a dumb idea don't rub it in." instead of the other way around.

    • TRIVIA: Val reacts more quickly to the gunman at the premiere on the news footage than she did at the actual premiere.

    • GOOF: When Colt Arrow comes to sell them the company Tasha says that she's not taking another bullet for him and she has a bandage on her arm covering a bullet wound but she hasn't been shot.
