La Vie Messed Up

The timeline goof of ''Rent'' -- We look at how the Christopher Columbus musical mixed up its years

We'll skip our rant about Rent's mangling of New York City geography (love that Tompkins Square Park subway station), but we gotta ask: Who decided to set the movie in 1989, despite the song lyric about 1991's Thelma & Louise?
