Continuity mistake: When the main character lady is having a drink with a guy at the wedding, she drops her little yellow umbrella on the floor. The guy gives her his pink umbrella.

Factual error: A headline from the Pantagraph (an Illinois newspaper) dated 19 December 2001, is shown in big letters to read, "Latest Florida recount shows Gore won election." In fact, no edition of the Pentagraph has ever featured an article that claimed this. The only time those words appeared in that newspaper was in small print over a letter to the editor dated 5 December 2001.
Continuity mistake: The movie is a documentary about a road trip from Seattle to Santa Barbara in chronological and geographical order. After passing Santa Cruz they were suddenly in Garberville and then Hopland, both north of San Francisco. They then resumed their trip south of Santa Cruz.Wayne C.
Factual error: In the scenes of the world, when they show the plane flying between destinations, the location of Dublin in Ireland should be at least 50 miles further north along the coastline, as Dublin is not on the south coast of Ireland.
Audio problem: When the giant petrel bird attacks the penguin chick, the bird noise is that of a skua not a giant petrel.
Audio problem: At the end when the guys are singing the musical number, Steve-O is coming up from the water saying "Now" but he is saying it backwards making it obvious the scene was reversed.
