Character error 

When Caleb's father tells him that Caleb's mother was the one who did the Love Dare, the two men are on a long path in the middle of the woods, at least several hundred yards from Caleb's house. Caleb, an athletic fireman, immediately sprints back to his house to apologize to his mother. However, his father, an old man nearly twice his age, arrives at the house about 10 seconds behind him and is not even out of breath.

Revealing mistakes 

In the train scene, they are unable to stop the train so they have to lift the car off the tracks. The Train passes at full speed (or what we deem to be full speed). At the very end of the sequence, in an areal shot, we see the train on the other side of the crossing. It could not have stopped that close to the emergency scene if it was going at 'full speed' when they were moving the car off the tracks.
