Near the beginning of the movie when Skeeter goes to his sister's house for her daughter Bobbi's birthday, Skeeter mistakes Patrick to be Bobbi, presumably due to the "boyish" sounding name. However when Wendy's best friend Jill shows up and is talking to Skeeter outside of the house, the present she has with her is wrapped in very "boyish" wrapping paper with basketballs and footballs all over it.

In the scene where Skeeter first spends the night with the kids, Jill and the kids are making signs. On the sign that Bobbi is working on first the C is not colored in. A little while later the C is almost completely finished; a few seconds later the C is just started, and a few seconds later it is just a little bit less colored in than just a second before.

When Bugsy is looking at Kendall from inside his cage, it is clear that he is looking at him from an opening in the cage and that both eyes fit in the opening and his sight is unhindered. But when the camera is angled from Bugsy's point of view, the cage is hindering his view.
