In the nursery near the end, when Patrick's son extends the tentacles and rises to the ceiling, from the first view just behind of and slightly to the right of Patrick, the boy starts out several feet away from in front of Patrick, but when the view switches to overhead the boy is rising from a spot less than a foot from in front of Patrick, practically touching him.

When Colonel Burgess is ordered by the pentagon officer to "keep testing", he answers "Aye, aye, sir" as to responding to a naval order. In this situation, a correct response would be "Yes, sir."

When Eve is escaping her holding area, the female guard going for the alarm has her hair done in a ponytail. For obvious reasons, women in the military are required to have their hair in buns if it's over a certain length.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Once they complete their mission to Mars, the astronauts receive a video message from the U.S. President. Later on in the film, when Colonel Carter Burgess Jr. reveals to Senator Judson Ross that Patrick Ross is involved in series of murders, a picture of the actual U.S. President at the time (Bill Clinton) can be seen hanging from the wall in the office. Several months have passed between the Presidents Video message and Colonel Carter Burgess visit to Senator Judson Ross. (Round trip to mars was 18 months.) Enough time for a presidential election to have take place

Revealing mistakes 

In the stock footage of the space shuttle landing, the name "Discovery" and the NASA logo are visible on the shuttle's side (rather than the fictional name "Excursion" and fictional space agency N.S.E.G.).

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

When Patrick kills his father, one of the tentacles goes though the front of his neck, directly in the middle. The father is screaming the entire time, and continues after the damage to his neck... the screaming should have stopped or been a harsh rasp as the damage was very clearly to the trachea and larynx.
