    • In The Beatles' first appearance on [The Ed Sullivan Show]: {Episode #17.19}, a shot of John Lennon was accompanied by the caption, "Sorry Girls, He's Married". In this film it's Mattingly who's shown with the caption, "Careful Girls, He's Engaged" during their national TV debut.
    • Both acts first reached fame after replacing their original drummer.
    • Each group loses its original bass player (The Beatles' original bassist [?] Stu Sutcliffe died and The Wonders' bassist joined the Marines.

    • In the extended cut it's shown that the group's manager, Mr. White, has a boyfriend. The Beatles' manager, [?] Brian Epstein, was also gay.
    • When The Wonders are running to their cars in Wisconsin to catch a plane to "the coast," Faye (Liv Tyler) gets mistaken for a female fan, and is stopped by the police from following the band.

Unlike the film's version, no one came back to retrieve Cynthia before the train left the station.
    • Before The Beatles struck fame in the UK, they were forced to change the drummer [?] Pete Best to ~Ringo Starr~. Before getting their first fame (playing {That Thing You Do!} at the contest), the group was forced to replace the drummer Chad and Guy had to step in.
