When the handheld-keyboard player in the band Munchausen by Proxy plays the passage from "The Star-Spangled Banner," the audio plays it in C major, but her fingers on the keyboard play all white keys with the melodic line resolving on an A, following a pattern that would in reality modulate the melody to A minor.

Character error 

After Carl goes bungee jumping he is seen answering his cellphone while still suspended from the cord. Due to the risk of them falling out of your pocket mid jump, most, if not all, bungee services would advise you to empty your pockets of anything valuable, like a cell phone.

When Carl is singing the song "Jumper" to the man on the ledge, he sings it incorrectly. He sings "And if you never want to see me again, I would understand." The actual lyric is "And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand."

In the scene where they travel to Nebraska and attend a football game and their friends see them on TV, the bottom of the screen reads "Nebraska vs. Oklahoma". It should read the other way around; as they were in Lincoln at a home game; the home team appears second.

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene where Carl is singing and playing guitar to the jumper out of the apartment window, the adjacent window can be seen to have a thick curtain from the outside where it appears to be much thinner from the view inside the apartment. Also, this same adjacent window can be clearly seen from the inside of the room although at times it is blocked off with a solid wall.
