Errors in geography

When Jamie leaves the house because she "has to catch a red eye to New York," the last two digits of the LED oven clock read "53". When Dylan goes to stop her, the complete time on the oven clock reads "45" minutes past the hour. When Dylan returns through the kitchen, once again only the last two digits of the clock can be seen, which now read "54."

After Dylan sees that Jamie has drawn on his face, he gets her back by drawing on her face with a pen with ink that will only show up under a black light. While he's drawing on her face, he makes what looks like a circle around her left eye. When she is shown, later at her meeting, with the drawing Dylan did on her face, there is no circle around her left eye. Some can say it was the eyebrow he drew, but the eyebrow shown drawn on her is not as circular as what was shown when he was drawing on her.

In the overhead shot of Jamie starting to climb the chain link fence at the Hollywood sign the fence material is on the far side of the top rail. However, the low-angle shot of her sitting on the fence shows the fencing has changed sides.

When Tommy jumps to the river we see that he jumps close to three feet away from the shore based on the impulse he took, later and from Dylan's point of view we see the boat a little farther, and finally when he starts the engine and goes, the distance is much bigger.

Errors in geography 

When Dylan picks up his father at the airport and eat at the restaurant Daily Grill, there isn't a Daily Grill at Newark airport or anywhere in New York City. However, they do have a location in LAX but Dylan is picking up his father in New York City not Los Angeles.

Miscellaneous 

Although the end credits feature the logo for the Panavision Genesis, that camera was not used to shoot this film. It was actually shot entirely with Sony F35 cameras.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At the airport, Dylan meets his arriving father at the aircraft gate rather than outside a security checkpoint. If meeting or picking up a family member that is disabled, or a young child, non-passenger tickets are issued, so the competent adult can pick up meet the individual at the gate. This would apply to the father because of his illness (Alzheimer's Disease).

When Dylan takes Jamie to meet his family and they all gather on the porch by the beach, a man in a white shirt and a woman in an orange bikini, walk through the background three or four times within a minute. They are always going in the same direction, and at least two of their appearances seem to be the exact same background footage played over again.
