Anachronisms 

In January 1997, Jeff jokingly tells his Sarah, that his family is like the movie "Titanic", and goes on to talk about nude sketches of himself - a specific reference to Titanic as opposed to any other Titanic movie. The nude-drawings Titanic movie wasn't released until December 1997.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Sarah and Beau are in his plane going down the runway, as a pilot, Beau would be wearing a headset to communicate with the tower or with air traffic control, but he isn't. However if we assume he has a private airstrip there would be no tower and he may have chosen to put on his headset later.
