Character error 

Early in the movie when Rusty is at older Russ' house, as Russ tries to sleep he comes out because Rusty is screaming. Rusty says the face on the moon can be seen clearly that night and that is why he is screaming. But in reality the face on the moon is on the side of the moon that faces away from earth so it can never be visible from earth.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The adult Russ Duritz and the child Rusty Duritz have different eye color. Bruce Willis has dark green eyes and Spencer Breslin has blue eyes. The color difference could be exaggerated by the lighting in the film, but eye color can change with age.

Revealing mistakes 

Russ and Rusty are supposed to be the same person however Bruce Willis (Russ) is left handed while Spencer Breslin (Rusty) is right handed. This is especially noticeable when Russ and Rusty are playing cards on the balcony but can also be seen when the characters are doing other things such as eating.

Bruce Willis and Spencer Breslin bear so little resemblance to each other that it is improbable that they could represent the same person at different ages.
