Continuity mistake: As Buddy walks out into the street at the start of the movie when the cat is playing dead, you can see several parked cars on the street behind him. When the van backs up to 'catnap' buddy, there are no parked cars. Then as the van drives off again, there is a different bunch of parked cars in the street. (00:03:54)
Audio problem: In the scene after Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson are returning from questioning the ex-wife of the murder victim at a spa, they are driving up in Luke's car. You can clearly see, as they get closer to the camera, that what you hear Luke saying isn't what his lips are saying. It was a very obvious dub over...and a very bad one.
Revealing mistake: When Cindy and Buddy get trapped inside the cold chamber, she starts rubbing him to a point that it becomes masturbation. But when she's sitting on his legs doing the thing, in one side shot you can clearly see she is not holding his privates and her hand is just going up and down, closed but empty. (00:58:05)
Continuity mistake: When the two brothers are frantically trying to get out of the car because the monster truck is barreling toward them (in slo-mo), you will notice that the tongue ring is missing from the one brother's tongue. Odd mistake seeing as his character is centered around the tongue ring. (01:27:05)
Continuity mistake: During the detention scene, the teacher comes in and you can see there isn't anything on his rear end. As he leaves, you can see toilet paper hanging from his rear. This was because a scene never made it into the movie where the teacher's office is in the mens restroom. Also confirmed on cast commentary.
Continuity mistake: After Joe picks his daughter up from her mother's, they drive into Minneapolis. While Joe is talking to his daughter, you can see Macaroni Grill and Galyns out the window as they drive past. After a quick shot of the daughter, when the camera is back on Joe, if you look out the car window again, they are passing the same establishments.
