Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Jane and Adam are looking over the plans together at her house, Adam asks "Have you lived here long?" but his mouth isn't moving.

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.
In the scene where Adam is trying on clothes, he tries on a sweater that he refers to as gray. It is clearly brown.

Continuity 

In the scene where Jane is in her bathtub talking to Jake, the lit candle in the bathroom window moves back and forth between different camera angles revealing that the scene was done with different takes.
Soon-to-be son-in-law Harley fills a glass of wine to the brim, but in the next shot as he raises it to his lips it is only 2/3 full.
When Jane asks Harley if he wants a toke from her pot in the bathroom, the cigarette along with the lighter are in her left hand. But in the next shot, the cigarette is in her right hand.
When Jane makes "croque monsieur" for Adam in her kitchen, she takes the pan of the sandwiches out of the oven twice.
During the scene when Jane is talking to her three children in the bedroom, Luke's hairstyle visibly changes from shot to shot.
Jake's necktie goes from being loose to completely tied between shots when he is putting it on during their conversation.
In the scene where Jake is eating ice cream from a parfait glass while Jane is relaxing in the bathtub, the ice cream changes from almost empty back to almost full.
When Jake is spying on Jane and Adam at her house, he peeks through bushes growing outside her kitchen window. But from inside the kitchen, his head is fully visible in the window with no bushes to be seen.
At the beginning of the film when Jane walks away from Jake (after discussing the hotel arrangement) her sunglasses instantly go from her hand in one shot to being worn in the next.
When Jane jumps out of the hotel bed because she's sick her hair is relatively straight but by the time she reaches bathroom seconds later it's quite curly.
When Jane and Jake talk at the hotel bar, Jane's martini glass suddenly jumps from being in her left hand to the surface of the bar, and she is shown nervously fidgeting with her purse instead.
After Jake and Jane's second love scene in Jane's house, Jake's hair goes from being messed up and fluffy to combed and gelled in between shots while he is getting dressed.
When Jane is telling her 3 friends that she is having an affair with Jake her hair switches from down around her face to swept back and keeps switching back and forth each time she is shown on screen.
Towards the end of the movie when Jane and Jake are sitting on the swing, the chain links behind Jane move, in some scenes there are 2 extra links hanging, others show 1 hanging, and some show no extra links.

Crew or equipment visible 

In the last scene, Adam has a visible earpiece.

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.
