Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the first shot of Jerry reading Chrissy a bedtime story, his lips do not match the words he is reading.

Continuity 

When Jerry is driving through the fences in the field, the window trim is damaged and the side mirror is turned inwards. However in the last scene but one, the car loses all its battle damage and the mirror is again straight. Not only that, but the big "cowcatcher" also disappears and the sunroof which previously was closed, is now open. As Jerry comes to a halt at the church, everything is as it should be.
As Jerry drives his SUV through the field and fences to the church, the brush guards on the front of the vehicle disappear and reappear.

As Jerry cleans Lori's face with a cotton wool swab, it is blood red from her lip, but as he takes his hand away the swab is clean.

We see Jerry cooking fish and he has his hand dirty with flour. In the next shot when he goes to answer the door, his hand is clean.

This was filmed in British Columbia, which is considerably wetter than the Sierra Nevada, and it shows. The shot of downtown Reno seems to be the only real scene from that region.

Revealing mistakes 

When Jerry flips the light switches on when Lori comes to the station for the first time, the lights come on before he flips the switches.

When Jerry reads Chrissy a bedtime story, it is supposed to be night time (in fact in the next scene, when Jerry goes outside, it is dark); however, bright sunlight can clearly be seen coming through the cracks around the window blind.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

When Chrissy gets off the school bus at the gas station, the logging truck coming from the other direction toward the bus does not stop, as it would be required to by law whenever a school bus is dropping off passengers. This "error" could have been put in the film on purpose, since we see a similar (identical?) logging truck involved in the final accident at the end of the film.
