Errors in geography 

When driving past White Sands National Monument, Earl is driving on white gypsum road with sand dunes on both sides. This type of road is only found within the National Monument. The road past the monument is a paved US highway and sand dunes are not on both sides of the highway.

Errors in geography 

Peoria is in Central Illinois. It would be cold in November around Thanksgiving, too cold to wear short sleeved dresses and no coats as was shown at the funeral.

Revealing mistakes 

When Earl is outside reconciling with his daughter, there are lilies in full bloom, yet there are no leaves on the tree (and presumably it is November. as he is invited for Thanksgiving).
