When John Lennon offers Paul McCartney the chocolate, he says "Take this, brother. May it serve you well." This is a direct quote of a line Lennon spoke in the background to the song "Revolution 9" and in the scene, it is meant to be a joke between the two. See more »
The movie begins with a message that the meeting it is dramatizing between John and Paul took place in April 1976 but when they got out into Central Park the leaves on the trees are yellow and the fact that there are yellow/brown leaves all over the ground indicate it would actually be late Sept or early Oct.

When this movie was first advertised on VH1, I was extremely sceptical. But, the closer the day came for airing, the more the advertising gave us different teaser glimpses and it intrigued me. By the time of broadcast, I was determined to watch it, albeit with my sharp critique in tact. Well, to my utmost surprise, I was absolutely amazed at the acting and simple premise of the flick. I actually had to stop several times to remind myself that this wasn't really Lennon and McCartney, but extremely talented actors with a very accurate (in spirit) script. Both Aidan Quinn and Jared Harris deserved awards for their touching performances of two of history's most talented and prolific songwriters.
