The ketchup bottle sitting on the grill (at the kid's birthday pool party) is a squeezable plastic 'flip-top' ketchup dispenser with a distinctly modern label. This particular ketchup bottle did not exist in the mid-1980s.

Character error 

Shonte Jr. complains about Pluto being a planet, saying that no planet has an elliptical orbit. All of the planets have elliptical orbits; Pluto's orbit is only more eccentric, and isn't in the same plane as the rest of the Solar System.
When Charlie and Irene leave for New York, the Colonel and his assistant are talking about him being a liability. The assistant says "But Captain, Police Work is Charlie's life...", incorrectly addressing the Colonel as a Captain.

Continuity 

Charlie/Hank's pants are zipped up and belt buckled after he flips himself to further stop "flashing" people.

The Ford LTD 2-door belonging to the "Barber Shop Car Owner" is a 1979 to 1982 model when it's parked out on the street. However, it changes to a 1983-1987 model when Hank crashes it through the window; the grille changes completely.

Near the end of the film, we see Irene and her ex-boss on a deteriorated wooden bridge. The gaps in the bridge's planking are spanned by two parallel boards. However, moments later when Charlie crosses the same bridge, the gaps are spanned only by single planks.

The length of the white picket fence, between Charlie's house and his rude neighbors, changes several times throughout the movie. Sometimes it appears to reach close to the road, other times it is more flush with the houses.

When Charlie is racing from the hospital on Lee's bike, we see him riding it on a highway/freeway. It is clear that Charlie is holding in the clutch, which means that the bike could not accelerate.

When Charlie first loads up Irene on the back of his motorcycle and takes off, the first highway shot bounces and the front wheel of the motorcycle can be seen clearly mot even turning, indicating the bike is on a trailer. The vast majority of cycle shots make the bike look this same way, like its on a trailer.

Errors in geography 

Before they make the first train stop, the train conductor announces they will be stopping at Providence, Rhode Island. But, the scene is filmed in Burlington, Vermont at One Main Street's train station. You can see a sign that says "Burlington" along with the distinctive addresses seen and license plates.

Scenes of Charlie/Hank's house were shot in the Bonnet Shores neighborhood, in the town of Narragansett. At one point, Charlie/Hank leaves his house for a drive (I think to work). The very next shot shows him driving west over the Newport Bridge, which is the incorrect direction if he's leaving from Narragansett.

Factual errors 

Charlie's diagnosis of "advanced delusionary schizophrenia with involuntary narcissistic rage" is incorrect. Schizophrenia causes delusions and hallucinations with paranoia. Many people used to believe that schizophrenia resulted in multiple personalities, but this is not the case. He should have been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (also known as multiple personality disorder). Further, there is no medication used to treat multiple personalities, although some medications can be used for other symptoms (such as anxiety and depression) that accompany the condition. Treatment of DID involves years of psychotherapy - the disorder cannot be cured by taking a pill as portrayed in the film.

Revealing mistakes 

The cow that Charlie tries to choke is obviously animatronic. When he is trying to choke it he moves back and forth and the whole cow moves back and forth, as if a solid unit.
When Whitey reads the note left by Irene and Charlie on the car Scooter is reflected on the car waiting and then moving onto the set.
