In Ollie's office, there is a poster in the background for Songs: Ohia's "Ghost Tropic" album, released in 2000. The scene takes place before Independence Day was released in 1996, before Songs: Ohia had even released their debut album.

Character error 

Ollie cautions Gertie to flush the toilet, but never mentions that she should wash her hands after using it. For a protective father like he is, this makes little sense.

Factual errors 

Gertie's gravestone indicated she died (in childbirth) on June 1, yet she was extremely pregnant in the scene where she was preparing to attend the Video Music Awards, which are held in late summer/early fall. Ollie and Gertie should have been preparing for the MTV Movie Awards, or else Gertie delivered about 6 months overdue.

Revealing mistakes 

When Ollie picks up Gertie at school and they are discussing about Cats, as the camera alternates shots between Ollie and Gertie you can see the background moving at different speeds (slower for Ollie, faster for Gertie).
