Audio/visual unsynchronised 

The grandmother fires the the shotgun in the house but we don't hear the bullets hit anything. Since she didn't hit Jeremy, she had to hit something (wall, window, furniture or art).
During the last wedding, when it cuts to a wide shot and the priest is talking, his mouth isn't moving.
When Jeremy is begging Todd to let him go to sleep, you can hear Jeremy talking but when we cut back to his face, his lips aren't moving.

Character error 

At the dinner table for the first family dinner, the Senator, when about to make reference to Jeremy's dancing at the wedding, calls him "John".
While hunting John says that John and Jeremy have known each other for 17 years, then when Jeremy is in John's apartment Jeremy says that they have been friends for 16 years.
During a discussion about an organic scallop farm, Claire says that they got the governor to subsidize the farm. She continues to say its the state's only "self-sustaining scallop farm", yet subsidization means that it cannot be self-sustaining.

Continuity 

When Gloria is tending to Jeremy's knee in the bathroom after the touch football game, she unties her shirt when she straddles him. Throughout the scene, the shirt reties and then unties itself.
While John and Claire are riding bikes to the beach, towels are seen on the back of the bikes, but once they get to the beach, the towels are gone. When they sit on the beach, they sit in the sand.
When Jeremy calls John into his office to first inform him that the wedding season has begun, John is holding a cup of water in his right hand. When John squeezes and throws the cup of water it is in his left hand. There is water on the back of the chair John is sitting on, but in the next shot, the water is gone.
When Jeremy is first tackled during the football game, he gets a small grass stain on his sweater right in the middle of his chest. In subsequent shots the grass stain disappears.
When Gloria is tending to Jeremy's football injury to his knee she is getting her supplies off of a cart. When she gets on Jeremy's lap there is no cart.
In the final scene in the church, Cleary's hair alternates between slicked back and standing up when he's talking.

When Claire first goes to check on Sack in the bathroom after he gets sick from the eye drops. She opens the door with her left hand and her right arm stays hanging. But when the camera cuts back to Claire her right hand is gripping the door and her left hand is no longer on the door knob but on the door itself. There is no way that her right arm could move that quickly to the door edge.

When Jeremy and the priest are sitting at the table talking, Jeremy pours him a hefty glass of liquor full to the rim. When the priest lifts his drink at the end of Jeremy's speach his glass is almost empty. The camera was on him most of the time Jeremy was talking and there is no way that he could have possibly drank that much.
