Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Nick and Dan are talking in Dan's office at the beginning of the movie (when Nick is expecting to get promoted) Dan says, "You know I'm not good at making speeches, especially when I don't have you to write them for me." His lips don't match what he says.

When Nick Marshall thinks he is going crazy and consults with his therapist, we see him enter the counseling office. The plaque on the door indicates that the therapist (Bette Midler) is a MA with a MFCC emphasis. He refers to her as Dr. Perkins. However, master's level therapists are not legally called doctors. They are known as psychotherapists. The only doctors who can conduct therapy are Ph.Ds, Psy.Ds, and MDs.

Just as Darcy and Nick begin dancing in the bedroom of her new apartment, some padding or floor protection can be seen covering the floor along the wall where she says her bed will go (covering the inlaid parquet of the floor). Moments later, as they are still dancing, the covering is gone (rolled up in a corner).

When Nick is in the psychiatrist's office the doctor is holding a pen in her right hand and is also holding the phone in the same hand. Then Nick tells her to guess a number and she does, and he repeats it back to her and she is amazed and hangs up the phone and throws the pen down on the floor. She then grabs the arm of the chair with the now empty hand. In the very next shot she has the pen in her hand again and throws it down again.

Errors in geography 

When Nick is trying to reverse the curse. He steps out to his apartment balcony and in the shot you can see he's in the shadow of the Hancock Building, but in the morning when he leaves his building, in the background you can see a sign for the street 'Fullerton Pkwy' which is over two miles away from the Hancock Building.

When Darcy is showing Nick her apartment for the first time, it's night time, and dark inside. She turns on the lights and shows him the living room, then goes over to the dining room, reaches in and turns on the lights there. Before she does, there is what appears to be street light shining through the windows on the wall. This light disappears an instant before the room lights come on.

Early in the film, when Nick returns to his office and the girls open the champagne, liquid can be seen coming out the end of the bottle before the cork exits. There was no cork in the bottle, just one already in Nick's hand. (This gag is revealed in the director's commentary.)
