Revealing mistake: Just before Dizzy gets skewered by a warrior bug, you can see breakaway panels on her body armor at the points where the CGI bug impales her, to cover the squibs used to make the holes. The shot is already shown in slow-mo so it's easy to spot.

Revealing mistake: During the last play of the football game, Dizzy throws Rico the ball and he does an impressive flying flip over several players. Right before the flip, it's extremely obvious that Rico runs up an off camera ramp/stairway in order to perform this flip.
