Continuity mistake: When Steve Finch crosses the street to talk to Buddy Hall outside the hardware store, he raises his collar around his neck. Slightly further on in the scene, when the two are in front of the tree, he places his hands in his pockets. The two then walk back to Hall's pickup, at which point Finch's collar is down, and returns to being up when they finish walking. At no time does Finch remove his hands from his pockets.

Plot hole: Buddy discovers a website, myearth.sat. The site, like Google Earth, contains satellite images of every square inch of the planet. Buddy can see his neighbor's house but not his own house. He decides to cover his house with lights so it can be "seen from space." There is absolutely no reason why the site would show every house in the world except Buddy's, except that the oversight is required in order to advance the plot.
Continuity mistake: When Finch sneaks into Buddy's yard to unhook the lights, he jumps into the stall with the camel. At this time the camel vomits on his face. But when he gets out of the stall, his face is completely clear. One can argue that he wiped it, but there is no way he could have gotten it completely clean with just his hand. He did not have time for all of that.
Continuity mistake: When Buddy is buying lights at the hardware Finch comes across the street to stop him. When someone comes over for Buddy's advice watch the shopping cart the amount of lights change from one (1) box to zero (0) boxes then when Buddy comes back to the cart there are two (2) boxes of lights in the cart.
Factual error: Although "Myearth" is a fictional site for the movie, all satellite sites (such as Google earth, etc.) show images during daylight hours (though I've seen rare exceptions of images during twilight hours). How could Buddy expect to not see his house (with or without lights) when the images show during the day?
