Character error 

When Jane and Adam put the croissants in the oven, they are much too close together. Croissants expand over double as they cook, and they would have stuck together. As a baker, Jane would know this.

Two issues about the Croque Monsieur that Jane has prepared for Adam and her. She takes the food from the oven and serves it. A little time passes while they chat and eat and Jane removes pan no. 2 of the Croque Monsieur without a sign that she'd made two batches. When Jake arrives and sees that Jane has company, he sneaks up the driveway and watches them through the window. Later, he tells Jane that Adam must be interested in her. He noticed Adam watching her butt while she took the food from the oven. HOWEVER, Jane has removed the food from the oven before Jake arrived. By the way, Meryl Streep has a very strange way of scooping the Croque Monsieur (glorified sandwiches) from the pan. It occurs to me that she accidentally uses some of Julia Child's mannerisms in the kitchen since she worked on both movies on 2009.

Revealing mistakes 

In the part of the movie where Jane waits outside the Santa Barbara Medical Building for her therapist, there is a sign that says Mission Pharmacy. In real life it is a restaurant called The Wine Cask. You can see wine bottles displayed through the glass door of the supposed pharmacy.
