Continuity mistake: When Will is sitting on the kitchen counter upset, he is eating butter biscuits from a tin, with the tin and the tins lid on the counter next to him. Then his mum comes in and they talk and at the end of the scene they hug; but now the biscuit tin lid has vanished although nobody touched it.
Continuity mistake: When Jack is trying to hush the audience at his show Jack-Talk after bringing Grace onto the show for a follow-up interview, between shots the little bell on his desk moves from his right (near the edge) to over past his left, near the centre of the desk with all the other items.
Continuity mistake: Shortly after arriving at their mother's house, Will's brother, Sam, nervously excuses himself from a conversation with Grace. "Excuse me," he says, "I have to go get a ladder. There's a couple of bulbs out in front, and now it just says 'Happy Ho-days.'" However, exterior shots of the front of the house show no holiday lights whatsoever.
