Big

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when Josh and his friend are walking down the street, a lady crosses the street in front of them. Look closely to the left of the screen. The lady is obviously behind the tree waiting for her cue because she is not seen walking toward the tree before crossing the street. (02:06:40)

Revealing mistake: The opening scene shows Josh and Billy as kids walking down their street. At the end of the film, Josh is a kid again and the two are walking on the same street. The same cars are parked there, and the same woman is crossing the street at the same place. It's obvious both scenes were shot the same day. (00:03:20 - 02:06:30)

Character mistake: When Tom Hanks starts to play on the floor piano he throws the bag he is carrying aside and when he goes to leave he doesn't pick it up. He leaves it on the floor.

Suggested correction: There is no scene afterwards implying he left the bag behind forever. When the scene ended he could have walked back and picked it up.
