Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When the lead Cheap Girl tells Walter they want to change their name, you hear "Meryl Streep" but his lips say something else. The same thing for Walter when he tells him he's not changing their name. Perhaps another name was originally used and the producers didn't get the permission to use it.

In the scene where the "Cheap Girls" talk with Walter on wanting to change their name to "Meryl Streep", it looks like he says "bulls**t" instead of "Meryl Streep".

Character error 

When Walter's lungs are compressed from falling into the hole with the carpet, trapping his arms, he is unable to shout out to Montgomery Schrapp (plot device). In the following scene when Anna is searching for Walter, he is clearly able to shout to her.."Upstairs!!" (full Tom Hanks signature shout).

Continuity 

When the kitchen's electricity starts going haywire, the stove doors opens twice. Once when it is first stuck, and once again when the meal explodes out.

When the bathtub falls through the floor, Walter is pouring water into it but when the camera angle shifts to an upward shot from the floor below, there's no water being poured.

When the bathtub falls, the chunk of floor it was sitting on - which would have also fallen - is nowhere to be seen.

Initially, the front door swings into the house and the door knob is inside and the handle is outside. They are on the left (as viewed from outside the house). After the door and frame fall off the house it is propped up in the doorway, but the door now swings outward. The door could only do that if it were propped up backward, which it is not: the door handle is still outside and the knob is inside, and they are still on the left (when facing the house from outside).

When the work crew arrives at the house, various numbers of ladders are leaning against the house in various shots.

When Walter is filling up the bathtub with water, he and Anna put the pots beside the bathtub. When Walter then leaves the scene to go get more water, he leaves them behind.

When Walter goes into the den to call the permit man, Montgomery Schrapp, you see a candle on the desk beside the phone. Walter uses a match to be able to see the number on the paper, and the paper catches fire. When Anna gets home and comes into the house, she turns on the light. When she finally finds Walter in the floor in the den, she turns on the light in that room, too.

Factual errors 

After the characters have hauled two two-gallon buckets of water up the ladder and dumped them into the bathtub, Walter goes back downstairs and, after the kitchen fire, brings up the third recently heated on the stove. That is also dumped into the tub, causing the tub to crash through the floor and land below. As the camera angle picks up the tub falling through the floor and the ensuing crash and breakage, there is no water spray from the broken tub.

When Carlos says, "Goodbye" to Walter, Sr. and his Brazillian wife, he first says "Auf Wiedersehen!"(German), then tries to correct himself by saying, "Hasta la vista." However he is still using the wrong language, as "Hasta la vista" is Spanish and not Portuguese.

Revealing mistakes 

When Anna is leaving Max's house after spending the night, she grabs her stockings which are hanging from the fireplace. The stockings are obviously brand new fresh out of the box.
