Continuity mistake: In one scene, Ike is dragging Tina down the hall to the bedroom, and you hear him saying, "Shut the f*** up!" three times, but when they show his face, his lips aren't moving.

Continuity mistake: When Tina first becomes a Buddhist, they show a scene of her chanting while Ike is in the other room turning up the volume of his stereo to tune her out. Several scenes later (and several years later, according to the subheadings) after Ike and Tina are divorced, they show the same scene of Tina chanting. Her hair and outfit are the same; it's actually the same exact scene.
