  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Just after the first time Lotte falls out of the portal onto the side of the New Jersey Turnpike, a palm tree is visible in the distance over Craig's shoulder.
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): When Craig and Dr. Lester sit together on the office windowsill to have a conversation, the shadow of a boom mic is visible on the window frame between them.
  • At the beginning of the film when Craig is trying to guess Maxine's name, one of the names he mumbles is Emily, the name of the child that Maxine gives birth to at the end of the film.
