Question: Why is the Apple logo on Nick's laptop upside down?

Answer: Apple PowerBooks of the time (around 1999 to 2001) had the logo the right way up to the user when closed, supposedly to prioritise the experience of the user over that of onlookers. According to former Apple employee Joe Moreno, Steve Jobs later changed his mind and after 2001, Apple notebooks had the logo right way up when opened.

Question: What would happen to Erin's interview if Darcy fires Nick, as it was Nick who arranged to meet her?

Answer: She would come in and explain it and they would either cancel it or interview her anyway.

Answer: Presumably she chose not to be credited. This isn't that uncommon when a major star takes on a relatively minor role in a film.

Question: What's the name of the actress that plays Nick's secretary? The only with the Ivy League education and a boyfriend in Israel. Her character's name is never mentioned so I can't use IMDb. She has a passing resemblance to Piper Perabo. I know it's not her.

Thanks very much.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Lauren Holly is explaining about her ex-husband, the little boy has a photo taken with all the girls. The woman on the far left opens her jacket in a flasher style, but in the actual picture, her hands are on her hips.

The scene was located in the exact same place, on the exact same corner, in front of the exact same building as a scene in Payback (albeit without the paper vending machine to put a gun in).
