Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Rebecca takes the green scarf to the counter, the cashier says "That's $120." Rebecca gives her $50 cash, charges $30 on one card, $10 on another card, and tries to put $20 on a different card which is declined. She got the $20 in cash, but the grand total is $110. She tried 2 more blue cards before the golden card was declined. It's very likely at least one of them was charged the missing $10.

The bridesmaid dress has sleeves at the beginning of the movie, and is sleeveless by the end. When Rebecca first tried on the dress, it was in the middle of alterations. Enough time passed for the alterations to be completed.

When Suze and Rebecca are going over credit card statements, Suze asks Rebecca how she will pay off "16 thousand, TWELVE hundred, 62 dollars, and 72 cents" without a job. Both women are very drunk, so she is probably too drunk to read the number correctly.

Plot holes 

Rebecca hides the scarf once she knows who her interviewer is, which results in Luke knowing that she was lying about the necessity of the scarf. But hiding her scarf was not actually needed; Luke had never seen it before and had no reason to believe that this was the very scarf she the needed money for.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Derek Smeath violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at least 4 times: calling Rebecca at work, refusing to leave her job when asked by the receptionist, telling his colleague to threaten her with public humiliation, and his entire diatribe during the television show. However, many *real* debt collectors ignore FDCPA, since it's not enforceable if no one complains, and many debt collectors assume that most debtors don't know about it.
