Factual error: A minor only has a certain amount of time (typically, 6 months) to invalidate a contract entered into when such person was underage once that person turns 18 (or the age of emancipation in that state). This brings up a plot hole: If the marriage was not invalidated because Samantha Cole was underage, the prenuptial agreement would not be either, and Fletcher could not have used that argument to win the case, since he specifically states that she was seventeen at the time of her marriage.

Revealing mistake: During the scene when Fletcher pummels himself in the courthouse restroom, the walls shake when he throws himself against them. The restroom walls were some type of marble or granite, and in real life would be very thick and rigid, making it very obvious this was a movie set.

Audio problem: When Fletcher gives Max his birthday gift, the shot changes as Fletcher starts to say, "I hope it's not partially digested." When Fletcher's face comes into that shot, you can see that his lips aren't moving.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, Fletcher is on the stretcher talking to Max, and looks at his watch to discover he has been able to lie for half an hour. Max then responds "So you lied?". Fletcher then grabs Max's shoulder with his left hand, saying "No! It was the truth!". As the angle changes he is still speaking, but his left hand is now lying across his chest before he reaches out to grab Max again.

Continuity mistake: Just after Fletcher steals the yellow airfreshener from the car yard, he has his arms by his side. When the shot switches back to him, he has his arm on the counter. Considering that he was watching his car in such a shocked state, it's incredibly unlikely he would change to this position.

Continuity mistake: During Max's birthday party near the beginning of the film, Audrey takes the cake out of the box and places it on the kitchen counter, and then puts birthday candles on the cake. In the next shot, the cake is sitting on a glass plate that wasn't there before.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Fletcher drives out of the parking garage almost causing a car accident, you can tell it's his stunt double, because his stunt double is wearing sunglasses and doesn't look too much like Jim Carrey. Then it shows a back view of Fletcher speeding away and his sunglasses are gone.

Continuity mistake: Just before Fletcher steers his flight of stairs under the wing of the plane, there is a shot taken from underneath the wing of the plane and you can tell by looking at the runway markings that the plane is suddenly barely moving, it appears to be moving about 5 miles per hour compared to about 30 miles per hour in previous shots.

Other mistake: Tower Air never had direct flight service to Boston, only to NY from LA.

Continuity mistake: Outside the court at 2:15 when Fletcher is first talking to his son in his cell, the clock has the sun lighting up half its face.

Continuity mistake: When Greta is asking Fletcher about her raise, the clock on the wall behind his desk says either 11:05 or 12:05 (hard to be sure). When he was on the phone with the judge, he said court started in a half hour, but when the courtroom scene starts we focus on the clock showing the time to be 1:30.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when Max is getting ready to blow out the candles, the shadow on the wall behind the mom comes from a light source that's equal in height to Audrey. Since the candles are the only light source in the room the angle they would cast would be more towards the ceiling.

Quotes

Cop: Do you know why I pulled you over?
Fletcher Reede: It depends on how long you were following me!
Cop: Why don't we just start from the top?
Fletcher Reede: Here it goes. I sped, I followed too closely, I ran a stop sign, I almost hit a Chevy, I sped some more, I failed to yield at a crosswalk, I changed lanes at an intersection, I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and SPEEDING!
Cop: Is that all?
Fletcher Reede: [Forced.] No. I have unpaid parking tickets.
