Anachronisms 

Even though the film has not indicate the year, the mise en scène places the story in the early 1970s.

Some cars that weren't in the production until the mid-1980s were visible in the parallel parking scene: Rover 800 (production started in 1986), third-generation Audi 100 (1982-1991), Volvo 245 (updated taillamps from 1981 onward), and second-generation Volkswagen Jetta (1984-1992).

The type of external rear-view mirrors and bumpers on Jaguar XJ driven by Jerôme (Shia LeBeouf) indicates a Series III (1979-1992) while the period-correct Jaguar XJ (Series I or II) should have chrome mirrors and bumpers.

Continuity 

When Joe parks Jerome's Jaguar (after Jerome failing to do so), the shot from the outside shows that the car is parked between two other cars, one in front and one behind theirs. When however, the shot changes to the back seat towards the front, we see that there is no car in front, just empty road.

Errors in geography 

The train carriage where the two girls pick up strangers is German, but the ticket collector is wearing a British Railways uniform from the 1970s.
The action is supposed to take place in England. But Joe's apartment has European-style electrical outlets (round pins) on the walls, as does the hospital room where she visits her father.
