Character error 

Ben says "between the five of us". The correct word is "among" as "between" is specifically for two, be it two individual people, two sides in a war or two slices of bread. A student as accomplished and educated as Ben would know to say "among".

Early in the film when Virgil is standing in the strip mall parking lot, a wide shot shows two blank store signs in the background. In the close-up, he has shifted down the parking lot slightly, and is now standing further to the right of the signs. This can be confirmed by looking at the addresses below each sign, which have changed.

While Ben and Stephanie are studying for biology, Stephanie recaps Mitosis and states the following phases in order: Metaphase, Anaphase, and then Prophase. It should actually be Metaphase, Anaphase, and then Telophase.
