While Charlie and Dan are on the jet to Tokyo, Charlie is eating sushi. At one point he picks a piece off his plate and pops it into his mouth. Then, in a wider shot, you can see the same piece of sushi is still on his plate.

At the campsite, while Scoutmaster Barry is speaking, Charlie and Dan are working. Charlie is on his laptop and Dan is working on his Blackberry. In one clip, he has an open portfolio (red file on left side, black file on the right side) on his lap and is looking at it while working on his Blackberry. The shot goes back to the scoutmaster, then back to Dan and the portfolio is gone. Once again it goes to Matt then back to Charlie and the portfolio is back. (at around 1 min)

When Dan and Vicki are having lunch several items on the table obviously change between shots. Most notably, the butter knife to Vicki's right and the photo strip also to Vicki's right. The butter knife points one direction then a different direction several different times and the photo strip is straight, then angled, etc.

When Jenna (Rita Wilson) is injured and taken to a hospital there is a shot of the outside of the hospital. In the background behind the hospital but clearly visible, there are palm trees. This hospital is supposedly in the U.S. northeast. There are no palm trees in that part of the country so this is most likely a "stock shot."

Revealing mistakes 

When Charlie and Dan are video-conferencing with their Japanese clients, the camera zooms into the Japanese boss' face when he is delivering his ultimatum. The zoom also appears on the pan-out of the television itself. No teleconferencing system in the world can zoom for dramatic effect.

When Dan is taking the self tanning session we can clearly see that the hair on his chest just grew back, although the tattoo is supposed to be already 7 years old.
