Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When the original cut was screened before a test audience, many in the audience insisted that the movie couldn't be a true story because no real life magazine would have nearly all of its journalists in their early to mid twenties (when in fact this really was the case). This resulted in place cards added to the opening of the film which stated that the median age of journalists working for the New Republic was 26.
  • Charles Lane, who was the real-life editor of The New Republic, was invited by writer/director Billy Ray to observe filming of some of the movie's scenes. The one scene shot while he was in attendance was the one where the TNR writers bad-mouth Lane behind his back.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the scene where Marty comes in to sit in on the meeting of the editors, Caitlin is wearing a light blue sleeveless top. However when the camera cuts back to the editors sitting down and checking the paper for "comma errors", she is wearing a dark blue button-up shirt with short sleeves.
  • In The Dialogue: An Interview with Screenwriter Billy Ray (2007) (V), Ray reports that his adaptation of an article by Buzz Bissinger for the script of Shattered Glass, built on his experience of having worked on a draft of an adaptation of Bissinger's book, Friday Night Lights, for the 2004 film of the same name. Ray did not receive a writing credit for the work he did on that adaptation.
