Trivia: At Monica and Chandler's reception, Phoebe covers for Rachel about her pregnancy by claiming she is the one who is pregnant. She says James Brolin is the father and that he is married to Barbara Streisand. Elliott Gould, who plays Ross and Monica's father, Jack, was Barbara Streisand's first husband and is the father of her son. Also, Gould and Brolin co-starred in the 1977 movie, 'Capricorn One.'.

Revealing mistake: Angelica and the other children are about to crash through the door to attack Lyra and Will. As Lyra runs past a cabinet, a lamp sitting on top is knocked over and crashes to the floor. Dafne Keene, who plays Lyra, reached over and very obviously pushed the lamp to the floor.

Continuity mistake: A few days after the friends have returned to New York following Ross' wedding, Monica's hair is suddenly about three inches longer and a completely different style than it was in London. It was previously just above her shoulders in a sleek "pageboy" style. Once back home, it is much bushier and longer, well over her shoulders. This was obviously due to Courtney Cox growing her hair during the break in-between Season 4, which ended with the Ross/Emily wedding debacle, and Season 5. (The first episode of Season 5 was filmed the previous season and was Part 2 of Ross and Emily's wedding).

Continuity mistake: When Matt is angrily talking to the comatose Elizabeth in the hospital, her mouth continually changes. From the side shot of her face, her lips are partially apart. When the shot is looking directly down on Elizabeth, her mouth is now opened much wider. It continually changes back forth as the camera angle switches.

Character mistake: Even though both Ross and Rachel have cell phones with them and use them for other calls, it never occurs to Ross early on and as he's frantically racing to the airport with Phoebe, to call and tell Rachel that he loves her or else to say that he is on his way to tell her something important before her plane takes off for Paris.

Stupidity: When the birds gather in the schoolyard, Melanie runs in to warn Annie. Rather than calling the police or fire department for help and then shelter in place until aid arrives (which would take about ten minutes), they instead decide to make a run for it with the children, out in the open, getting attacked by the birds. As it's the 1960s, the schoolhouse presumably has a working phone.

Deliberate mistake: In a flashback to the Maisels' wedding reception (about 1953) Midge surprises Joel by having hired professional dancers, who are shown performing the well-known "Bottle Dance" (the part where they slide on their knees). This dance routine, which is often performed at Jewish weddings and other social events, was actually choreographed by Jerome Robbins for the musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," which debuted on Broadway in 1964. The dance did not exist at the time of Joel and Midge's wedding, but, as an inside joke, while Midge watches the dancers, she says, "That's really good. They should do something with that."

Other mistake: Annie is the only teacher in the town, and there is only one classroom with students, all who are around the ages of 10-12 years old, even though the schoolhouse she teaches at is a two-story, mid-sized building with multiple rooms. There are no administrators, staff, custodians, or other teachers and no students in lower and upper grades at all. Even when Annie and Melanie are evacuating the children during the crow attack, there is only the two women and Annie's students. There is no-one else.

Factual error: A round-trip voyage between Mars and Earth would take about two years. Although the movie's timeline is compressed, from when the astronauts supposedly leave Earth to them supposedly returning (and dying) and then Caulfield rescuing Brubaker, the entire plot implausibly takes place in only eight months. It is mentioned at the memorial that they "left" Earth eight months earlier. The military memorial is held at least a month after the "tragedy" so that would mean they made the trip in seven months, which is impossible. The film is not set in the future when technology would be more advanced.
