Boom mic visible 

When Vivian and Bernard are inside of Dawn and Brad's house after rummaging through the trash, the boom mic is visible in the reflection of the yellow teapot as Dawn pours it.
As Bernard discusses with Albert how his nose has no beginning and no end, you can see the boom mic in the reflection of the sunglasses on top of Vivian's head just as the scene ends.

Character error 

When Bernard hands Vivian the phone for an emergency call from Tommy, the phone is in the right direction. When Vivian receives it, however, the phone is upside down and Vivian begins talking into it without flipping it around.

When Tommy's wife is leaving him, Bernard shows him a picture of the universe. He looks over to the left side of the picture when pointing out "our galaxy." However, in Tommy's next line, he points to the right side of the picture and says, "There's us over here."

When Catherine is in Albert's parent's apartment, she's seen holding Albert's childhood journal. On the page that is open, it appears that the first words of the first sentence are "I went...". Yet, when Catherine asks Albert's mother to read the entry, she reads "I came home..." first.

In the flashback scene where Brad and Albert are talking in the restaurant Brad tells him his girlfriend liked Albert's "poem about the rock". This is impossible because Albert first read that poem after saving a piece of the marsh at the beginning of the movie so at the time of the restaurant conversation, the poem had not yet been written.

Factual errors 

"Beethoven's String Quartet #14, Op. 151" is mentioned in the credits. There is no Op. 151. String Quartet #14 is Op. 131.

Revealing mistakes 

Most cars in the movie have obvious "prop" license plates (with blue and white shading, and no State name, as if to obscure the intended setting.) However, numerous cars are seen to have California plates - often cars not under the control of the production team, for example, driving by on the roads. In one scene in the parking lot, all of the cars in the "background" have California plates, all of the cars in the "foreground" have prop plates.

Near the end of the movie when Albert clambers onto the rock beside Tommy the sound betrays the fact that the rock is made of plaster or fiberglass.
