Factual errors 

Miranda states she is drinking a Mind Eraser, however her drink is red and it has tequila in it - both not true. A Mind Eraser would not be either since it contains only vodka, coffee liqueur and soda water.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Eddie said The Perfect Storm was shot off the Mexican resort but the movie was never filmed in Mexico. He was just saying that to discourage his wife from going on to the boat.

On the way to Mexico when Lila tells Eddie she wants him to find a hotel so they can have sex, the next shot shows their car taking the exit off the highway. There is however only one person still in the car and you can clearly see it is neither of the main characters but a stunt double.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Character error 

Lila told Eddie that her cocaine abuse gave her a deviated septum (a crooked nose). Cocaine abuse can produce a perforated septum (a hole between the nostrils), which is what Lila has. Hilarity ensues as different items come through.

Factual errors 

At the end of the movie, Eddie moves to Mexico because he says that Lila got the store in the divorce. California is a community property state, meaning that all marital assets are divided in half at the time of a divorce. Therefore, Lila would not have been entitled to the store because Eddie already owned it before they got married, making it exempt from the marital assets. At the most, she would have been entitled to half of any income he made during their marriage, but they were married such a short time that it probably would have not been very much.
