Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

In the last scene in the hospital after Mary has given birth there is a shot looking out the window of Pastor Skip getting out of the car with a bouquet of flowers. This scene takes place the day after Prom, which is at the end of the school year, but fall leaves are clearly visible on the trees indicating the scene was filmed in the fall.
