Continuity mistake: When the main character goes to visit the foreign girl she puts him to work raking leaves. Seeing the amount of leaves all over the lawn he puts into action a plan to quicken the task. Later we see a bunch of piles of leaves all over the yard. While speaking with the girl you can see the piles of leaves in the background. At one point, as they are speaking back and forth, the lawn has leaves spread out all over it. Then, as they continue to speak back and forth, the leaves are once again in neat piles.

Continuity mistake: When Zach escapes in the QT Panel Van with French Stewart in it, the van repeatedly gets hit by the chasing cars, yet the damage to the van comes and goes with different shots.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Zak photographed a typewriter and posts it online. The angle he is holding the camera and the outcome of the picture does not tally.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Gibbs snaps the watch back into place before he puts it in the box, he puts the yellow cover on upside down, as evidenced by the square on the face of the watch being at the bottom of the watch as opposed to on top. For the rest of the movie, the watch is normal.

Continuity mistake: When Zak freezes Francesca when she sprays him with water, he presses the button on the watch with his right hand. We cut to a closeup of the watch and Zak's hand is nowhere to be seen. In the next shot, his hand is back on the watch.

Continuity mistake: Early on in the movie, when Zak's parents are talking in the basement, the mother's arms are folded. After she says "Sweetheart, I bought a new toaster a year ago", her arms are by her side and she folds them again.

Other mistake: When the young couple goes into town everything is moving very slow, almost as if they are frozen. When they are looking at the Mustang, look in the background. The guy standing still has become a victim of wind. Notice his shirt flapping in "real time" and not "hyper time". If everything is slow then how come the guy's shirt is blowing in the wind?
