Continuity mistake: Brinkley, Joe's male dog, is obviously a smaller female dog, and she is played by two different dogs. One dog has longer hair than the other. The two dogs keep switching back and forth. The dog(s) never seem to respond to the computer screen or any other directed area, they are firmly focused on their trainer.

Continuity mistake: When Meg Ryan is waiting to meet her online friend (Tom Hanks), Tom picks up the rose and puts it in his mouth, but when the camera cuts to a view behind him he is just spinning it. (01:01:40)

Continuity mistake: When Joe is on the yacht talking to his father, Joe is mixing up martinis, pours them, and adds an onion to one, and then an olive to the other. The camera cuts away to his father and then cuts back and now the second martini has no olive, so Joe adds an olive again. (01:30:11)

Trivia: In the scene where Tom Hanks is visiting Meg Ryan, she is in bed and he is sitting on the edge of the bed talking to her. Right before he gets up for a moment to pull up the covers over her, (now, turn the sound up for this one) he actually passes gas. You can hear the little "pop", he starts to grin and then probably realizes that the director is going to just continue on with the scene, so his grin fades and the scene goes on. I replayed this over and over. It really happened.
