Continuity mistake: After Bob comes home with the RV, when he and Jamie walk into the kitchen there is a butcher block cutting board laden with items, at the edge of the counter. However, when they speak beside that island counter the cutting board is gone. (Even more noticeable on fullscreen DVD.) (00:10:20)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: In the RV, Jamie puts stacks of dishes away in the overhead cabinet - second from right, when Cassie moves Carl off the couch. When Bob makes the sharp right turn, the dishes pour out of the overhead cabinets, but the ones that come out of the second cabinet are not the same dishes that Jamie put away.

Revealing mistake: When Bob has difficulty with his seat belt at the start of the road trip, the side-view mirrors have a translucent finish, just as in other shots throughout the film; however, the mirrors' surfaces are normal in the rest of the shots. Deliberately done to obscure the reflection of the crew. (00:13:20)Super Grover
Factual error: When the family is beginning their trip, Bob has difficulty putting the RV in gear. We hear gears grinding despite the fact that the vehicle obviously has an automatic transmission (as evidenced by the column shifter). Automatic transmissions do not contain the same type of gearbox as manual transmissions, and it is impossible for an automatic to create a gear-grinding noise. (00:13:30)
Continuity mistake: After the Big Rolling Turd has rolled backwards over the grocery carts, in the shot of the RV heading down the highway the back center window curtain is hardly open. In the following interior shots, as they sing, the entire curtain is open, but in the last exterior shot it is hardly open again. (00:17:15)Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When everyone is singing their own song (except Robin Williams), the last shot of this scene shows the back of the RV. As the camera pans down, you can see several cars reflected in the window, one of which is the crew's truck with the camera crane erected above it. (00:18:35)MooCow
Revealing mistake: The Munro's RV has a large pop-out (slide-out) on its left side, behind the driver. When the pop-out is closed one side wall should be directly behind the driver's seat, but that wall is gone - it has been deliberately removed. As a side note, when the Munros rush to leave before Mary Jo Gornicke reaches them, that wall (with a small window) is seen in the exterior shot, as it slides in. (00:19:15 - 00:39:30)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Jamie pinches Carl's ear because he spills their destination, when Mary Jo walks toward the Munros, Billy's back faces the camera as he stands on the ground, away from the bus. However, in the next shot Billy faces the camera as he stands on the stool while leaning on the bus. (00:35:10)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Mary Jo begins walking to the RV at 6:00 AM, Bob and Carl remove the tire blocks outside, while Jamie closes the "stupid pop-out thing" inside. In the exterior shot, as it slides in, Bob is sitting with his hand on the steering wheel - though it isn't until two shots later that Bob actually gets back to the driver's seat. (00:39:25)Super Grover
