- When Jack reveals that he didn't write all of the songs, he credits four people (John, Paul, George, Ringo). The crowd cheers as he gives away the music for free, but because people do not know what happened during the global blackout, they should think that the four song writers should receive all of the credit and royalties associated with the recordings.
- In the scene where Ellie meets Jack in Liverpool, Jack says that she drove 370 miles to be there. They are both British so he should have used kilometers and not miles for the distance.
- Ellie falls in love with Jack as a teenager when he plays Wonderwall at a school concert. If Oasis, and the song Wonderwall have been wiped from history as the film suggests, why is Ellie still in love with Jack when he wakes up in the post-blackout time line. Wouldn't this have significantly altered their relationship?
- While picking out a name for his album, one of them is titled The white album. There is no official Beatle album with that name. The "white album" is simply called The Beatles.
- The first time Jack googles The Beatles in his room, there is a Killers poster on the wall behind him. The Killers were formed after their lead singer Brandon Flowers was inspired by an Oasis concert he had attended. Later in the movie, it is established that Oasis, in addition to The Beatles, had been wiped from existence as a result of the blackout. Therefore, The Killers would likely not exist as well because Brandon Flowers would not have attended an Oasis concert. Response: There is no way to know if The Killers would have been created if Oasis did not exist. In the alternate reality that movie creates, Brandon Flowers would have been inspired to form a band while watching a different concert.
- In the interview scene with James Corden, Jack's fly is initially open. When it cuts back to the interview moments later it is closed.
- We kept finding things that were missing from this new reality, The Beatles, Coca cola, cigarettes and Harry Potter, but we never found anything new and different that was not in the old reality. That would have added some fun.
- When Jack is in the Los Angeles recording studio, a European-style (green) Fire Exit sign is seen over a door.
- The Rolling Stones are still famous in Jack's new world. This would have required them to take a different path to fame because George Harrison encouraged Decca Records to sign them to their first record contract & Lennon/McCartney wrote and helped them with their first top 20 single I Wanna Be Your Man.
- In the film, Jack and Ellie remark multiple times about the time in middle school where Jack played "Wonderwall" at a talent show, and that was the moment where their friendship blossomed. However, the band Oasis (along with Coke, Cigarettes, and Harry Potter) is one of several well known entities to be non-existent in the alternate world. This means that Ellie would not have any idea what the song "Wonderwall" is.
- During a crowd shot at Wembley Stadium, London, a grandstand sign saying "Principality Stadium" can be seen. This is the sponsored name of the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
- Following Jack's rise to success, many eager screaming fans chase him in public places. Yet there are plenty of scenes after this point where no one chases him/seems to notice him (his dining in an upscale hotel restaurant seems to be the best example of him being "ignored").
- The bus which hits Jack should never have hit him. It clearly drives over a road marked GIVE WAY triangle the driver would have seen before the lights went out. Also, if the driver knew the route, he know there was a give way sign there already, lights or not. He should have been slowing down to stop at the junction.
