Continuity mistake: When Jack sees the glue bottle it turns 180° between shots, check the position of the label. One could argue that both sides have a label, but a shot later the kid is grabbing the glue and there's no label on the side facing the camera.

Continuity mistake: When Bernie is on the toilet, his feet go from wearing socks to no socks.

Continuity mistake: Jack drops the two vials into the Tom Collins glass, while in the bathroom. At the hand-off, when he places the drink on the tray, there are no vials in the glass - there is no ice blocking them from view, just a skewer holding a maraschino cherry, a wedge of lemon, and a straw - no vials. Even Jack can't make the two vials invisible. (01:23:40)

Trivia: In the scene where the three men are in jail towards the end of the movie, the jailer that comes to let them out (but is stopped by Ben Stiller) actually plays a cop in the Comedy Central show "Reno 9-1-1". In fact, he may even be wearing the exact uniform he wears in the series. Also, the sheriff deputy who comes off the motorhome yelling "Look, he has rubber boobie!" is also a cop on Reno 9-1-1.
