Corrected entry: When Roger gets angry with John and Brian at breakfast, the counter is covered with crockery and food until Roger grabs the coffee pot and turns to smash it, at which point the counter is clear.

Correction: This is incorrect. After Roger throws food at Brian, Freddie walks out and the camera follows him to the field behind the house. You can hear, in the background, the boys yelling, fighting and throwing pans and breakables including cups and plates. And the camera cuts back to the boys, when Brian and John tell Roger not to throw the "coffee machine" - the counter is free of plates and cups but it's covered with spilled coffee and bits of food... everything was thrown around the kitchen during their fight.

I don't think that's right (but I don't have the movie to hand). As I recall it, the time between the two points I'm discussing (Roger turns round to get the coffee pot and then goes to smash it) is only a couple of seconds. But human memory is fallible. If you have a link to the scene as shown in theatres, I'd be interested.

You can see it if you go to YouTube - spilled coffee, bits of food and in the upper left you can see remnants of the stems from the flowers that were in the vase. Here's the YouTube link. https://youtu.be/17CluXgNMmQ.

Video blocked on content grounds, sadly, but I'll take your word for it.

Factual error: We see Fat Bottomed Girls being performed in 1975 in the USA. The song wasn't played live for the first time until 1978.

John Reid: So, tell me. What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?
Freddie Mercury: I'll tell you what it is. We're four misfits who don't belong together, playing to the other misfits, the outcasts, right at the back of the room who are pretty sure they don't belong either. We belong to them.

More trivia for Bohemian Rhapsody

Question: What is the significance of the bar scene they keep cutting to during the live aid performance? It does not appear to be the same door that Freddie first played with Smile so I'm not sure the significance. Also, who is the blonde guy with glasses sitting next to Bob Geldof when Bob is asking for money? That's supposed to be someone famous?

Answer: It's not any specific bar, it's just a very common trope in this kind of movie to show everyday people in a bar/pub watching/responding to a massive televised event (cf. V for Vendetta). The guy sitting next to Bob Geldof is David Hepworth, who's not super famous; he's a British music journalist and was a co-presenter of Live Aid.
