In all but the third close shot of the drummer at the House of Blues auditions (while he mouths at Anna), the drums you hear are different from those he plays (you hear cymbals when he never actually strikes any, etc.). In the third shot, the audio and video appear to be synchronized.

During the House of Blues audition, in the intro, you see the backup guitarist with the black stratocaster playing. Since Tess (in Anna's body) isn't playing, palm mutes are heard. It looks as if the backup guitarist is playing the palm mutes, but her palm is nowhere near the bridge or on the strings. She's strumming the guitar, and Anna originally plays the palm mutes.

Anna gets a cartilage piercing while in Tess' body. Later that day Tess, while in Anna's body, instructs her to remove it. The piercing hole would have closed. However at the wedding reception the piercing is back. It would be assumed that she would not get it pierced being back in her own body.

On Thursday night at the Chinese Restaurant, Anna is wearing nail polish (most noticeable when she reads the fortune cookie note). When we see her in bed on Thursday night, the nail polish is gone. However, on Friday morning she's wearing nail polish again, and it appears to be a different shade than she was wearing at the Chinese Restaurant.

Factual errors 

When Anna submits her paper about George Orwell's 1984, she writes that this is an American novel. It is a British novel.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When asked, Anna tells Jake that she plays her "dad's old Telecaster". The guitar she plays in the movie is not a Telecaster but a Telesonic that wasn't produced and sold until July of 1998. However, the Telesonic is a guitar made by Fender themselves and based heavily on the design of the Telecaster. It is considered a 'supersonic' version of the original guitar, hence the name 'Telesonic'. It would be quite reasonable, for the sake of keeping explanation to a minimum, for Anna to refer to her guitar as a Telecaster.
