Continuity 

Jack tells his class that his birthday is on September 12, but his parents were at a Halloween party the night he was born.
When Jack first goes to school and sits down in his desk for the first time, you can see his book bag and a broken desk to his right. In the next shot, he reaches for the book bag and falls over. A second later, the desk is shown breaking as he sits in it - the same desk that could originally be seen the first time he sat down. The scenes appear to be reversed.
