This movie takes place in 1983, yet the taxi cab that Abby gets into near the end of the movie appears to be a 1986 model. The car has a high-mount brake light, which didn't appear on cars in the U.S. until the 1986 model year.

On the bus to the ice-pond, Owen is wearing a winter cap where the top half is yellow. When he gets off the bus, and the bully tells him he's going for a swim, his hat is now all dark colors.

When Kenny, Mark and Donald first confront Owen at the ice pond, Mark's hands are out of his jacket. When the camera angles to show Kenny, Mark and Donald's faces, Mark's hands are suddenly in his jacket.

Plot holes 

In the first hospital scene the policeman is not out of the room long enough for the events in the second version of that scene (Abby visiting her "father" Thomas) to take place.

Revealing mistakes 

Owen is playing Ms. Pac-Man in the arcade, yet the sound effects are from Pac-Man.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When the Policeman is breaking down the door to enter Abby's apartment there is quite a bit of damage done to the door, especially around the area of the door handle, but as he enters the apartment with his gun raised the door appears to have no damage at all.

Continuity 

When the disfigured Thomas leans forward to Abby on the hospital window ledge, the camera angle shows he is a mere inches from Abby - as if they were about to kiss goodbye. When the camera angle switches, they are almost arm's length apart.

Factual errors 

When the Policeman breaks down the door to Abby's house, he is holding a 1911-type pistol. This sort of weapon is single-action, which means the hammer must be cocked before it can fire. The hammer is in the forward/down position the whole time, meaning he was entering what he knew to be a dangerous situation with a weapon that would not fire if he pulled the trigger.

Revealing mistakes 

When Owen is rescued from the bullies at the pool and Abby kills them all, we see blood flooding down over Owen. When Owen gets up and is looking up at Abby, the bloody water is suddenly gone.
