Anachronisms 

Assuming this movie takes place in the present, the nurse's uniform in the delivery room is a least twenty years out of date. RN's are no longer required to wear all white nor to wear their nursing school cap. Even the most die-hard ones gave up the white and caps by the mid 80's.

Character error 

When Joe orders his lunch, he distinctly asks for two glasses of water with no ice to be brought to the table before the orange juice and the meal. However, when Jenna brings two glasses of water, one orange juice, pie and tomato, Joe complains about the ice, and the fact that Jenna did not bring salt and pepper to the table - but does not criticize the fact that Jenna brought the whole order together, rather than separately as he had instructed.

When the Exhausted Mother gets sprayed with silly string, the silly string changes color. As the mother and son are walking up to the porch, the silly string is blue. When the son sprays her during the first close up of her face, the silly string is pink. When the camera switches to Jenna then comes back to the mother, the silly string is blue again.

When Jenna is making Dawn's "Falling In Love" chocolate mousse pie, the sun is pouring in from the window behind her. The previous shot established it was already night.

Factual errors 

When Jenna is in labor, the hospital labor and delivery room nurse is wearing a white uniform and white cap. Hospital nurses in labor and delivery stopped wearing those uniforms in favor of scrubs by the time this film was set.

During the movie, Jenna makes two lattice-top pies by laying all of the dough strips in one direction and then placing the dough strips for the other direction on top of the previous strips. Usually lattice-top pies are made with the dough strips for both directions woven together with each other. (That way they look better and bake more evenly.)

Revealing mistakes 

Whenever Jenna is dealing with the stove or oven, it is always off. Be it placing the pies in, taking them out, or melting the chocolate in the sauce pan.

After the opening credits, Jenna can be seen absently mixing chocolate in a bowl. But the closeup view of the bowl shows it is cleaner on the sides than on the wider shot.
