Character error 

When Dr. Hogue is having his heart attack and Dr. Stone uses the defibrillator paddles on him, he tells Nurse Packard to set the machine to "400 Watts." Defibrillation magnitude is measured in joules and/or watt-seconds. While older defibrillators could deliver a maximum of 400 joules the model defibrillator shown in the film (a Physio-Control LifePak 5) could only deliver a maximum of 360 joules.

Ben hands Lou a small bouquet of pink flowers, which she informs him are protected because they are the state flower. South Carolina's state flower is actually Carolina jessamine, which is a yellow flowering vine.

(at around 10 mins) When Dr. Stone first walks into the hospital, there is no time clock under Dr. Hogue's picture - but on the next visit to the hospital, at about 21 mins, we see the time clock. It's not like the time clock was put there for Dr. Stone because of his community service, as there are several other time cards also.

When Dr. Stone realizes he needs to get the pig back, he goes to Melvin's garage and then the butcher shop; both of these scenes are set in the dark, but when he picks Lou up, it's twilight, yet all this happens in the same day.

In the restaurant, before and after the mayor holds the town council meeting in order to offer Dr. Stone a salary, the catsup bottle moves closer to / further from the napkin dispenser between every shot. Also the orientation of the napkin dispenser changes from face on / side to Dr. Stone.

Errors in geography 

Unless he mistook Hollywood, Florida, for Hollywood, California, anyone traveling from D.C. to L.A. wouldn't come within 500 miles of South Carolina.

The judge sentences Dr. Stone to community service as a doctor because he's "a licensed physician." However, since medical licensing is by state, it is highly unlikely Stone would just happen to be licensed in South Carolina.

Near the beginning of the film, when Ben goes outside his cabin toward the lake, there is nothing visible on the path as he sits down. After Lou emerges topless from the lake, and has her exchange with Ben, she then reaches down to pick up a robe to cover herself. The robe would have been clearly evident to Ben as he approached the lake, but there was nothing in the prior shot of the path.

Miscellaneous 

When Dr. Stone is giving the injection to the guy fighting with the other one (during the house call montage), you can see water (or a liquid substance) splashing to the ground (on the right side, next to the guy's head), therefore showing that it's not a real needle and not a real injection.

At the trial, the flags behind Judge Evans are improperly placed, with the National Colors, a.k.a., American flag on the right, instead of the left. And the South Carolina flag is on the left, instead of its proper place on the right.
