A full rack of ten pins appears after Rayette picks up the spare following her gutter ball. This is correct but since it is the last frame of the second game, she gets another ball, which is not taken.
When Bob and his sister return from drinking coffee on the water front he no longer is holding his brown coffee mug. When the camera angle changes to show them walking up the porch steps the cup is not present.
After Bobby and Carl are finished playing Ping-Pong, Carl leaves in the blue station wagon to go to the mainland where he spends the night. In the next several scenes when Bobby and Catherine spend time together while it is understood Carl is away, they are seen cavorting outside where the blue station wagon is shown parked in the driveway.
Early in the movie, when in the bedroom with Rayette, Bobby's arm position is inconsistent.
At the bowling alley, a stain or wet spot is visible on the seat of Bobby's jeans, but is gone in the next shot.
When imitating a musical revue, Bobby zips down his shirt, but it is zipped back up in the next shot.
The flowers in the vase as Catherine puts them on the piano change position.
Bobby's arm position changes when he is sitting on the couch as Catherine asks him to play the piano.
Ray bowls a strike, but in the next shot when she turns to face the other bowlers, the pins behind her are standing.
While parked on the freeway, Elton's shirt sleeves switch between rolled up and unrolled.
After Elton is arrested in the oilfield, Bobby's helmet is only a few feet away when he threw it off quite a distance away.
During the ping-pong game between Bob and Carl, in the background you can see Spicer cleaning the wheelchair on the right side. When Carl is returning from retrieving the ping-pong ball that went under the car, you briefly see Spicer on the left side of the wheelchair.

Crew or equipment visible 

At around 55 minutes into the film, when Robert opens a door to find Partita giving their father a haircut, the head of a crew member hidden behind the open door is reflected in the mirror above the fireplace. The crew member moves slightly just before the scene cuts to Robert standing in the doorway.

Errors in geography 

Bobby tells Raye that he has to go to Washington State to see his father who had a stroke. The Dupea household was actually on Central Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and the ferry scenes occurred at Brentwood Bay and Mill Bay, which are also on Vancouver Island, not Washington.
