Errors in geography 

In some shots, the boulders and all of the water toys appear to be at least a quarter of a mile across the lake. In other shots, the lake appears to be only several yards wide.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Specialized cinemas and small-town movie houses often re-release older movies, so Ice Age and Napoleon Dynamite could be playing simultaneously at such a venue.
