Goofs

Anachronisms 

When Maggie gives Jamie Pop Tarts, the box is historically correct, but the foil wrapper is the style that is used currently.
When Jamie is presenting TV-Sets in the opening scene, he introduces three 52-inch Flatscreen (or bigger) models by Philips, Samsung and Magnavox. The scene is set in 1996. 1997, Philips introduced the first 42-inch plasma display (US $14,999) to the retail public in 4 Sears locations in the US. 52-inch displays weren't among their Flat-TV range until at least 2003.
Xanax is listed as a drug made by Pfizer. This wasn't true until after Pfizer merged with Pharmacia (formerly Pharmacia & Upjohn) in 2002.
When Jamie is looking up something on the iMac computer, he is using an "Apple Pro Mouse", an optical mouse that was introduced in the summer of 2000. The movie is set in 1998 when Viagra was first introduced by Pfizer.

Character error 

Trey refers to himself as "an ex-Marine". An actual Marine would never use that phrase. The status of being a Marine is retained for life, hence the motto "Once a Marine, always a Marine". It would have been more appropriate to have him refer to himself as "a Marine veteran".

Continuity 

When Jamie is leaving Maggie's apartment the buttons on his white shirt alternate from half-buttoned to fully-buttoned each time we see him.
When Jaime and Maggie are eating cereal on the couch and Jaime is telling her the story about his report card, he is eating out of a box of "corn flakes", but he is eating cheerios out of his hand. Likewise, Maggie is eating cheerios out of her bowl.
In the car when Jamie is being transported to the hospital, at some points when Josh is talking to him it cuts between different shots of Jamie looking out the window or looking straight ahead or at Josh, when there isn't enough time for him to move his head between these shots.

When Jaime is on the couch eating cereal at Maggie's house, the box reads "corn flakes". The label switches from facing the camera to facing away from the camera. Also, the box switches from the corn flake box to what appears to be a Honey Nut Cheerios box.

When Jamie is handed the list of dates by Dr. Knight's secretary, Gail, he drops the paper on the desk, seemingly indifferent while listening to Gail. In the immediately following shot, responding to her question, it is in his hands and he is reading it.

The position of the box of corn flakes changes during the conversation about changing report card grades.

Errors in geography 

Jamie and Maggie are in Chicago. In the scene where they walk across the street after the unConvention, the street sign clearly shows "Seventh Avenue." There is no Seventh Avenue in Chicago.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Near the end, a video is watched from a Fisher Price PXL 2000 camcorder hooked up to the TV. Audio is heard but only the yellow video cable is connected. These camcorders had an RF modulated output so video and audio were output through a single cable and modulated so a television could tune into the signal on channel 3 or 4 when attached to the antenna connector.

Revealing mistakes 

When Maggie falls to the floor after walking in on Jamie and his brother, her "modesty patch" is clearly visible.
When Jamie is chasing after the bus the license plate on his car is California plates yet he is suppose to be living in Philly.
When Maggie is using the camcorder in bed to film Jamie the camcorder is tilted, but the black-and-white shots of of Jamie are not.
