Character error

In the opening airport scenes several of the same people repeatedly cross behind the main characters. For example: Black fellow in yellow and black jacket (which at one point is removed), fellow with red backpack, woman with pink knit hat, etc.

Errors in geography 

The license plate on the Toyota Prius has an Illinois plate but the license number is the wrong format for Illinois plates. Numbers and letters can not be mixed on Illinois plates.

Factual errors 

In a last desperate attempt to play match-maker between his niece and Morgan the free-spirited globetrotter, Henry Winkler hides Morgan's passport. Something that would _not_ be necessary on a domestic flight between Chicago and Denver, even under the Real ID Act of 2005, provided Morgan had an up-to-date American driver's license.

It's clearly stated that his last driver's license was when he was 18.

When Jen is sitting on the steps with Uncle Ralph after she broke up with Richard she is wearing a blouse that has buttons on the right side. Women's blouses generally have buttons on the left side while men's shirts have them on the right. She is either wearing a man's dress shirt or a woman's blouse that doesn't follow fashion norms.

Miscellaneous 

At the beginning of the movie when Jennifer's neighbor asks about when her Christmas lights are going onto the house, Jennifer says she hadn't gotten in contact with her light guys yet. As she closes her door an starts her car to leave, you hear the typical starter sound from the engine as she begins to leave. Well, the Toyota Prius does NOT have a "starter" like regular cars. You can't hear when the engine starts because the motor-generator turns the engine to start, so it's virtually silent when the engine starts up.
