On the Line

Plot hole: When the Chicago Post first runs the story on Kevin, there is a picture of him on the front page, next to the headline. So anyone who was following the story would have known what he looked like, which would make it impossible for Kevin's friends to get away with pretending to be him.

Plot hole: Kevin is waiting at the train station for "the L-girl", and she sends a paper plane down to Kevin to get his attention. By this time the reporters have lost interest, and are turning away. Kevin looks up and starts to walk towards Abby, and the TV cameras start to run up to Abby to get a shot of her. Only problem is, How did they know what she looked like? Kevin is the only one who knows that she is the "real" L-girl.

Plot hole: When Rod meets "The Mick" the girl with the crutches comes into the room and in the midst of their conversation she refers to him by his real name. When they went on their date he went as Kevin so how did she know his real name?

Other mistake: In one scene, Dan Montgomery is in his office when someone brings him one of the flyers Kevin had put up. When she enters the room Montgomery is playing a green Game Boy except there is no game loading into the Game Boy.

Trivia: Part of the movie was shot in Toronto (actually, the guys' apartment is in Toronto, I remember seeing interviews), along with where it takes place, Chicago. If you watch the credits and you watch where the cast is dancing while Al Green's singing, you can see a Tim Horton's Roll Up the Rim billboard in the background. Also, that scene takes place at the Eaton's Centre in Toronto.
