Factual errors 

When Enid rips open the wrapper of the champagne/sparkling wine there is no metal wire around the cork. There is always a metal wire (because of the pressure that is inside the bottle).

Revealing mistakes 

The actor who plays the high school principal in the graduation scene also plays one of the customers in the porno shop. This was not intentional - Terry Zwigoff cast him as a porno shop customer forgetting that he also played the principal.
