Anachronisms 

When Oliver and Emily are in the bar in New York, Oliver pays with what appears to be two bills that are of the "new style" (larger head shots of the presidents, etc.) although the scene is supposed to take place before this new monetary style was introduced.

Character error 

In the scene where Oliver and Emily are sitting at the bar, Oliver asks the bartender to make their second round a double. The bartender remarks that the shots they are drinking are doubles even though they are clearly drinking out of standard 1.5 ounce shot glasses.

In the restaurant, when the waitress is putting the food onto the table, there is much greenery on Oliver's dish. But in the shot from behind Oliver's shoulder there is almost no green.

After leaving the airport, Emily and Oliver are on the train platform. As they're talking, Emily lights a cigarette, takes a few puffs and then drops it and stamps it out. In the next scene she takes another drag on a cigarette without lighting up another, and drops this one and stamps it out.

Revealing mistakes 

The nude photograph in the desert. Emily sets the shutter at 40 seconds (the time they need to remain absolutely still) but with such a long exposure the moon and stars would move enough to get all blurred as well (a lot less then one second is required). When we later see the photo the moon is sharp.
