Riding in Cars with Boys

Plot hole: In the scene where Jason has his 5th birthday party, after the party it's night time and Bev is sitting on her front step alone when she is startled by her old friend from high school. They begin to walk and talk. She says to him at one point that she is 22. Now when Jason is born, it is stated by her dad that she is 15, so if it is Jason's 5th birthday that would make Bev 20 years old, not 22.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the sidewalk where Bev is pretending Faye is her mom (and she's practicing to tell her mom that she's pregnant) the same people walk by several times. I don't think there was a single shot-reverse-shot sequence that had the right people walking by at the right time. You saw the same couple, for example, walk by at least four different times.
