At the wedding, Bernie mentions having been Greg's father for 36 years. But one major plot line revolves around Greg being 19 when he lost his virginity, and that this happened exactly 15 years ago. If Greg was 19 years old 15 years ago, this would make him 34, not 36.

When Jack takes 3 quick photos of Jorge with his camera pen, Jorge is not smiling and he is looking straight ahead. However, when Jack uploads the photos in the email he sends from the command center of the RV, Jorge is smiling in the first photo and has his head turned in the third photo. Also the speed at which the camera takes the photos would be too quick for any physical movement to be made in between.
After Jack gets the massage from Roz, he heads to his camper. After straightening out his back he starts buttoning his shirt as he walks. In the next shot, his shirt is completely buttoned and neatly tucked in his pants. The was no time for him to do all this in the time he was walking.

Sodium pentathol works as a truth serum in that it relaxes a person and does make them very communicative, sharing thoughts without hesitation. This makes them easily guided in questioning since they speak first and think later. However, the person loses inhibition but not self-control. The person will not simply begin to spill information if they choose not to or are not prompted to do so. Sodium pentathol is also a commonly used anesthetic. A syringe with a highly concentrated dose of that amount would have put Gaylord out cold on the floor. He wouldn't have been awake enough to tell the truth.
Greg is clearly driving the motorhome on the interstate with two divided pairs of lanes going in opposite directions with white (not yellow) lines down the middle, yet one shot shows an SUV going past them in the opposite direction in the lane right next to them (and they're all in the wrong lane, too, for America).
