Continuity 

During Claude's bus trip at the start of the film, he passes a field of ripe orange pumpkins, indicating that the time of year is autumn. When he gets to New York, specifically after the party where George stops the car, yellow forsythia are in bloom indicating that the time of year is spring, and the trees are all green instead of autumn colors.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Berger goes to Vietnam the army only knows him as Claude Bukowski, but on his tombstone it has Berger's real name. However, at the beginning of the movie Berger is burning his draft card. It is possible that he could have told someone of the mistake, and, since Berger was supposed to be drafted anyway, they kept him.
