Other mistake: In the scene where Nicole opens her locker and a note from David falls out, the handwriting is exactly the same as the seen where Nicole leaves a note taped to the bedroom door for her father. Although the letters are larger, the same applies to the note on the father's vandalized car, which says he's popped both of their cherries.

Continuity mistake: When David talks to Nicole in her Jeep, at one point her hair is over her shoulders. Then they show David again then back to Nicole and the hair is behind her shoulder and it keeps repeating through out the scene.

Plot hole: At the end of the movie where David and his friends are attempting to break into Steve's house, David has the door code and attempts to gain access once by using it. Steve then tells his wife and the kids to go hide upstairs and turn off all the lights so nobody will know where they are. Then Steve and his wife go to another part of the house, away from the front door. Then, we hear David and his friends using axes and a big log to try and break down the door, "before* Steve secures the door with household appliances later on. Why wouldn't David have just kept trying the code?

Suggested correction: The reason David can not keep trying the code, is because the door has a lock on the top, and one at the bottom (middle regular lock). That middle lock is able to respond to the key/pass-code system, but the top one is not. In order to get in the house, David would have to be able to enter the pin (which, yes he knows) but with the top lock still locked from the inside he can not get in. I am assuming there is a key slot on the outside where he would need a key, and also I'm sure the family doesn't bother locking the top half of the door as no one else knows the pin (so they thought). And I'm guessing that they never locked it during the day either, and only at night.

Continuity mistake: When the girl and hear brother are playing the video (before Mark Wahlberg and his friends try to break in), the game they are playing are from the Street Fighter series and the sounds coming from the game are wrong, those are Asteroid type sounds.

Continuity mistake: At the end scene when Mark Wahlberg and his friend are attacking the girls in the bedroom, keep an eye on Reese Witherspoon's left shoulder. Her shirt repeatedly changes from torn and her bra strap showing to being intact and the strap covered up quite a few times within the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Mark Wahlberg is chasing after Alyssa Milano in his car, they go to a shot of her driving in the background it is water but when it cuts back to him it is trees, also a car comes in the opposite direction but it never passes any of them.

Other mistake: In the scene where Gary and Nicole are leaving school and Nicole is telling Gary "please don't tell Margo'' when we first see them they are wearing clothes that were worn in the ending then it switches. Keep eyes on Nicole at first her clothes is the black dress with pink shirt underneath and her hair is down, it switches and she's wearing red pants, purple shirt, and hair in a pony tail.
