Continuity mistake: The scene where the elementary school teacher asks his kid what they did that week. After he asks that question and Maizy raises her hand, look at the desk belonging to the girl in the row next to Maizy. It has crayons and other supplies on it. After the teacher calls Maizy's name, the shot goes back to her, showing the girl in the next row's desk completely empty. (00:58:00)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the bowling alley scene, Uncle Buck rolls a ball in unison with a man on the next lane. The ball knocks over all the pins, but when they cut back to Buck celebrating his strike, the man next to him is rolling another ball already, much faster than possible.
