Goofs

Continuity 

Ben can be seen wearing his wedding ring in scenes after it was stolen off his finger by the prostitute.
When in the pool, Ben has a tattoo on his back.
When supposed to be playing blackjack, Ben and Sera are sitting at a Caribbean Stud Poker table.
The toilet paper is folded when Sera first sits down to urinate. The next shot of her sitting on the toilet shows that the toilet paper isn't folded any more.
The level of liquid in Ben's glass when he's packing to move to Sera's place.
During their first "real" date in a restaurant, a guy with a blue and white shirt passes them in the same direction twice in within three seconds.
When Ben is driving to Las Vegas he is alternately wearing a shirt with cuffs and a cardigan-type zip up jumper with no cuffs.

Out at the pool at the desert motel, when Sera picks up the bottle and walks over to sit on Ben, the alcohol in the bottle goes from about half full as Sera is sitting, to three quarters full as she sits and drinks. Also, the label on the bottle is facing away as she starts to sit, yet is facing the viewer as she completes her sit. As she sits with her hands apart, arms spread wide, holding the bottle in one hand, it would be quite difficult for her to spin the bottle 180 degrees in the second or two it takes her so sit.

Ben drinks from his beer when he is giving Sera the earrings. In the next shots the beer is full again.

Crew or equipment visible

Factual errors 

Ben flips out and overturns a blackjack table in a casino. The tables in casinos are fixed to the floor to minimize the risk of someone stealing chips by "accidentally" overturning the table and scattering them on the floor.
Yuri is supposed to be swearing in Latvian on the phone. In fact, he speaks gibberish.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When driving through Las Vegas, Ben finishes a bottle of Vodka, two minutes later there is liquid in the bottle again. Since he is severely alcoholic, it can be expected though that it's not necessarily the same bottle, he may also have opened a second one.
Ben solicits a prostitute who steals his wedding band. Several scenes later when he is being fired, he is wearing it again. However, the opening scenes of the movie are not in chronological order. In the same scene where you see the ring again, you also see him receiving the severance check that he cashed at the bank in the previous scene.

Revealing mistakes 

Ben has an outburst during the blackjack scene and the waitress behind him falls on the floor even though Ben never actually pushes her.

The checks (casino chips) in play on the dice game in particular are unlabeled. Those are hard plastic play at home chips. Every joint has the name and denomination of their checks on a round label in the middle of their, usually, clay checks or sometimes a hard, slippery composite check with a metal insert about the size of a dime. The checks are labeled for obvious security reasons.
