Continuity 

When Deeds is practicing the proposal with his butler, one of the candles in the center of the table hasn't been lit. During their conversation, the candle becomes lit.
The hidden camera on Pam's sweater keeps disappearing/reappearing throughout the scene before the cat rescue. Also, while trying to capture the rescue on film, Pam indicates that it is in the flower, when in fact it was shown in the middle of her collar in earlier shots.

The movie takes place over a "few days" while Chuck gets the paperwork signed to get Deeds his money. When Chuck and Cecil pick Deeds up from his hometown to take him to New York, the helicopter lands on bright green turf and folks in town are wearing summer clothes. By the time Deeds leaves New York a short time later, it's winter. Ponds are iced over and the snow is thick on the ground, as if it has been winter for some time.

Factual errors 

Preston Blake is airlifted from the top of Mount Everest - around 29,000 feet - above the maximum altitude possible for most helicopters (the air is too thin). No helicopter was able to reach the top of Mount Everest until 2005.

Plot holes 

When Deeds is rescuing the cats, he saves a few before the characters stop in front of a stove and say that there is only one cat left. As the characters are discussing this, there is a cat in plain sight on top of a stove behind them. They do not save this one, however, since the "last cat" they are talking about is the one on fire under a chair, not this one on the stove.
