Dan in Real Life

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the mom is making sandwiches she picks up a piece of meat and puts it on the sandwich in her hand but then when the shot changes she is taking that same piece of meat and putting it on the same sandwich, and you can see that she isn't taking another piece and putting on the sandwich because you can see that all she has on the sandwich in her hand is a piece of lettuce.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mitch and his brother are singing at the piano, a close up on Mitch's right ear reveals an ear-piece monitor that isn't there when the shot pans out towards the end of the scene.

Continuity mistake: In the scene during the credits, the right shoulder strap on Marie's dress has fallen off her shoulder. Her body turns as she dances in the circle and her right shoulder is not visible momentarily. When it becomes visible again, her strap is up. No one touched her and she did not "shrug" it up.
