Revealing mistake: When the two station reporters are investigating Eddie's room, as the female bends down to the table, she is scared by a dog. In one shot you can see a black wire on the dog. (00:14:55)

Revealing mistake: The final shot of the sex-scene between Bill and Marsha is very obviously a piece of (rather cheap-looking) 2D cell animation. The actors look like cartoons, the fire is simply the same few frames repeated over and over and the background looks obviously painted.

Continuity mistake: When the two station reporters are showing Eddie's drawings to George Waggner, the drawings change position on the desk between shots. (00:16:00)
