Continuity

In the break-up scene in the car the background changes completely. Before the line "You told your dad?" you can see an intersection and a hillside behind them, then after there is a yellow house and two parked cars.

The key bag at the graduation party alternates in fullness throughout the evening. When it is handed to Lloyd at the beginning of the night, it appears full, and in subsequent shots (which show Lloyd collecting keys) the bag goes from appearing nearly empty to its eventual (and initial) state of being filled.

Factual errors 

When James Court is shown flirting with the woman at the mall in the checkout line, his credit card was shown being declined. The implication is that his troubles with the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) were responsible for this. However, until the IRS either freezes ones assets or seizes them, then credit card companies will not decline purchases unless the consumer was delinquent or overdrawn on their account. As shown later in the film, when his attorney is discussing a plea deal with the IRS, they have taken no such action and, in fact, are attempting to obtain assets through forfeiture pursuant to his guilty plea.
