Revealing mistake: When Mel Gibson is in Marisa Tomei's apartment he goes to the WC to talk with his "little friend". He just got out of her bed and he is supposed to be naked. While sitting on the toilet he is filmed from the waist up but you can clearly see on the left corner of the screen that he is wearing a dark piece of underwear.

Revealing mistake: When Mel Gibson races out of his agency to catch his own taxi to find Judy Greer, the taxi begins to signal it is going to pull over even before he whistles or gestures to it. There is no one already in the taxi so it would have had no other reason for pulling over. (01:42:05)

Revealing mistake: When Nick drops the blowdryer, and it's moving in slow motion toward the tub, why is the blowdryer casting shadows on the ceiling directly above the tub? That would mean there are lights either in the tub or on the floor right next to it. (00:29:00)

Continuity mistake: When Helen Hunt first gives Mel Gibson a tour of her new apartment, she shows him the bedroom, where you can clearly see brown paper taped on the floor where the head of her bed would be. While they are dancing, there is no paper there. (01:38:00 - 01:38:55)

Question: Why is the Apple logo on Nick's laptop upside down?

Answer: Apple PowerBooks of the time (around 1999 to 2001) had the logo the right way up to the user when closed, supposedly to prioritise the experience of the user over that of onlookers. According to former Apple employee Joe Moreno, Steve Jobs later changed his mind and after 2001, Apple notebooks had the logo right way up when opened.
