Continuity mistake: After Ben nearly hits Madison, he gives her a ride home and she leaves her music notebook in his truck.

Continuity mistake: In various scenes, you see inspection stickers on the windshield of the main guy's truck, then they disappear.

Continuity mistake: When Ben and his girlfriend are in the diner where she works, they're talking at the bar (the scene right before the one with Madison and Josh making out in the car), and Ben's girlfriend tells him that she thinks he should leave.

Then in her next close-up, her head is once again on her crossed arms.

Continuity mistake: When Madison pushes Amy into the pool while handcuffed to a chair, the camera shows a close up of her handcuffs behind her back at the bottom of the pool. Amy's handcuffs were applied with the swinging jaws inward, towards her back. In a subsequent shot, Ben is picking the handcuffs to free her and the swinging jaws are facing outward.
