Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dylan is chatting with Jamie, you can see a computer screen right behind her. You can see that a window on the desktop changes position and size between shots, even though no one is using the computer at any time during conversation. (00:54:00)

Continuity mistake: There is a boat in the background of the jet ski scene which changes with the camera angles. One camera boat is further away, and then the boat is really close. There are also two guys fishing, one with a yellow coat on. In the next angle there's no yellow coat, and then at end of that scene there are 3 guys in the boat.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Jamie meets her boyfriend after coming off the phone, throughout all of this scene the extras walking past them change or disappear depending on the shot/angle.

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the film when Dylan is on his phone and he jumps in his car, as he is about to sit down in the seat a car comes into shot just behind him. By the time he sits down it literally disappears. It couldn't have passed that quickly; two different takes or shots have obviously been edited together.
