Factual error: When Novalee is locked inside Wal-mart during a storm she looks out the front. Water is streaming down the front doors. The problem with this is that the doors of the Wal-mart are very far under an awning and would never see that sort of rain. The awning is shown a minute or so before and is a standard Wal-mart feature. (00:16:45)
Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Novalee and Willy Jack are leaving to go to California, Novalee asks Willy Jack to take a picture of her friends. When he takes the picture, she's almost entirely facing him. However, when the picture is on the visor on Novalee's side of the car, her back is completely turned away from him and all you see is her back and the back of her head. (00:01:40 - 00:03:05)
Novalee Nation: What do you think? It took me a whole month to get back to my old size.
Thelma 'Sister' Husband: Oh, well, a little weight on a woman is no harm.
