Errors in geography 

(at around 35 mins) During the conversation in the tow truck between Barris and Arctor, visible landmarks switch between Irvine, CA (on the Tustin border) when the camera is on Barris, and Orange, CA (on the border of Anaheim) when the camera is on Arctor. In addition, the same exterior shots from Interstate 5 of the Irvine Technology Center business park are passed several times in the same scene.

Factual errors 

(at around 10 mins) Arctor's residence, on the computer screen, is shown as Anahiem, California, a misspelling of Anaheim. The associated zip code, 98345 is for Keyport, Washington.

(at around 35 mins) After the car breaks down on the freeway, they cut to a scene where the car is facing backwards on a flatbed tow truck. If the car was picked up on the freeway, it would be facing forward unless the tow truck picked up the car from the rear which on the freeway would be highly unlikely.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When Fred enters Hank's office wearing the scramble suit, Hank immediately recognizes him and greets him by his name. Although Hank discovers Bob's real name towards the end of the scene, many people that work there wear the same scrambling suit, thus it would be impossible to know who walked through the door.
