* ArtisticLicenseHistory: A lot of events depicted in this movie were historically inaccurate. One such example was calling "Private Dancer" her first solo album; it was her fifth. You've also got "Proud Mary" first being performed in 1968, a year before Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival made it a hit as ''their'' original recording. And Tina's 1968 suicide attempt (by downing sleeping pills before a show) taking place in the early '70s.

* JerkAss: Ike's increasingly abusive and envious treatment of Tina in the film borders an out and out SanitySlippage. Naturally the real life counterpart wasn't too happy about his portrayal.

* MoodWhiplash: An in-universe example. In a diner, Ike forces Tina to eat some cake, not too bad considering his character. But Tina refuses, saying it's too early (Breakfast time) but Ike insists, eventually smashing the cake against her face, then Tina, in response, splashes her drink on him, so he smacks her a few times. Then her sister defends Tina, which makes Ike lash out at ''her'' then at the other citizens in the diner for not "minding your damn business." Then, as if nothing ever happened there, he exclaims "Dayum, this cake good!" [[{{Narm}} That last line from Ike just makes the scene so outrageously over-the-top that it's hard not to laugh.]]

She then Tina, in response, splashes her drink on him, so he smacks her drunken husband, who's clearly making a few times. Then scene. Ike gets up, seemingly to beat Tina, but her sister defends Tina, which makes Ike lash out at stands up as well, and bears the brunt of Ike's violent rage, as he calls ''her'' then at out in front of the other citizens customers in the diner for not "minding your damn business." Then, as if nothing ever happened there, he exclaims "Dayum, this cake good!" good!", again offering some to Tina.
