Revealing mistake: Throughout the cockpit scenes, Otto's (the auto pilot) face is just painted, with no facial features sticking out.

Revealing mistake: When the doctor is removing the eggs from the woman's mouth, he actually has them in his hand, not taking them out of her mouth. A simple sleight of hand, but still noticeable.
