When Bob and Vanessa are fighting in the trailer Bob fires off 19 shots. Bob appears to be wielding a .45 semi-automatic pistol with a standard magazine, which means it could hold 9 bullets (8 in the magazine and 1 in the chamber). Even an extended magazine (which would have been clearly visible protruding from the bottom of the gun handle) would only hold 14 bullets maximum.

Errors in geography 

The address that Vanessa shows Bob has a 94132 zip code for Stockton. The zip code 94132 is really a San Francisco zip code.

It is said that Vanessa is diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder, but in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, this diagnosis cannot be given to anyone under 18 years of age. Instead, a juvenile is diagnosed with Conduct Disorder.

Revealing mistakes
