Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Jack and his friends are at the bowling alley, Jack bowls down the aisle. When the bowling ball is just about to hit the ten pins you can see a reflection of the camera filming the scene in the shining bowling ball.

Factual error: In the bowling alley scene, Jack's friend tells him that Kate is well-liked in all of Union County, but in the movie, Jack and Kate live in Teaneck, which is in Bergen County.

Question: Jack does not meet the Black mugger/angel again after returning to his former life. He wakes up in his apartment the same date he fell asleep, on Christmas. Were Jack's experiences all a dream?

Answer: More of an alternate reality. He really was living the life he'd have lived if he'd come back from his flight. The "angel" placed Jack in an alternate reality, then put him into the past in his original reality after he'd learned from his experience.
