Trivia
During scenes in which Brian Wilson is demoing "I Get Around" and "In My Room," the real Brian Wilson contributes the vocal, recorded specifically for this movie. However, an uncredited Jeffrey Foskett, a member of Brian Wilson's touring band, provides the high notes during the "In My Room" demo.

Goofs
In the opening scene in 1960, a Wilson boy jumps out of the car with a skateboard. The skateboard has large composite wheels which weren't available to the public until the early-'70s.

During a scene in the second half of the miniseries, Mike Love's mustache starts to fall off when he's in bed and talking with his wife.
Share this
When Mike Love gets into his Duece Coupe after talking to his father you can see the ignition switch is on the steering column. Since this scene was right after Brian gave Surf City to Jan & Dean that makes it 1963. The ignition switch was mounted on the dash until the very late 60s.
