Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Maggie and Jordan are talking in the locker room and Jordan ask her to marry him, you can see his mouth move, several times, when the camera is behind him, but he doesn't speak in the scenes with the camera behind him.

Character error 

When Meg Ryan listens to Dennis Franz's heart with her stethoscope, she places the stethoscope in her ears backwards. (Ear canals angle forward and stethoscopes do likewise - putting them in backwards is painful and can also prevent them from working) Ouch!

Continuity 

Maggie wakes up in bed wearing a ribbed tank top. She rolls over to check the time on the clock and suddenly she's wearing a satin spaghetti-strap camisole.
The time on a clock in the kitchen.
When Maggie is in the bath-tub, Seth can clearly be seen in the corner of the mirror when Maggie runs her hand through her hair. Then in the next shot (the famous 'no-reflection' scene), he has no reflection.
When Maggie arrives at the hospital by bicycle, the heiight of the seat changes as she parks it.
When Maggie is riding her bike to the hospital at the beginning of the movie, the seat is clearly adjusted quite high. When she parks the bike, the close-up of the bike shows the seat only about two inches above minimum.
When Maggie sees the truck she is about to hit towards the end of the movie, the truck is coming from the right side of the road and making a right turn. Later on when Nicolas Cage comes around to where Maggie is lying, the truck position is in the opposite direction, like it came from the left side of the road.
When Seth is cutting the lettuce, he pulls a knife out of the knife block containing 4 or 5 knives. In a later shot, after he has cut his hand, there is only one knife in the block.

When Maggie and Seth are on the floor of Maggie's uncle's cabin, Maggie's hand alternates between touching/not touching Seth's face between shots.

When Maggie is putting away her name badge after meeting Seth in Messenger's room, her fingers are all behind the badge. In the next shot, her index finger is in front of it, touching her name.

Factual errors 

When Maggie and Seth are looking at Maggie's blood through a microscope, the image shown is too zoomed in for a light microscope (with a maximum resolving power of around X1500).

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At Messinger's welcome home picnic, Seth's reflection is visible in the sliding glass door. But Seth can be seen if he wants to be.
