Revealing mistake: In the swimming pool scene, when David is sitting at the bottom of the pool, you can clearly see a scab on one of his knees.

Continuity mistake: After the pool incident when David is writing letters. Monica is looking over the letters that David has written. There's a point where you can see that she's still holding at least 2-3 sheets of paper but when the camera shifts back to the writing there's only one in her hand. There should be more than one paper in her hand. And when viewed from behind her back the sheets are neatly lying on top of each other, when seen from the front, the sheets are tilted.

Audio problem: When Monica runs back upstairs to see what David did to her perfume bottle, the sounds of the footsteps on the stairs don't sync up with the steps we see her taking.

Matty Blast

Continuity mistake: When the doctor takes out the chip filled with spinach, the amount of food on it differs between shots.
