Corrected entry: Why didn't Miss Long make the connection between Jerry's kidnapper and Rupert Pupkin? Rupert made so much commotion at the network's offices in looking for Jerry that they needed guards to throw him out, and yet, she doesn't mention any of this to the FBI agents.

Correction: Langford was also being stalked by Masha, something which his close associates would have been aware of. Perhaps they didn't connect with Pupkin because he was relatively new on the scene compared to how long Masha had been annoying Langford. The point of the movie was to illustrate how desperately clingy some fans of celebrities can get - it could have been "anyone".

Continuity mistake: Masha reaches over with her left hand, but it is a right hand that removes the tape off Jerry's face in close-up. (01:19:00)
