When Carol goes through "Linus's" wallet and discovers he is actually Jerry Webster, she is holding a blue nightgown. When she turns around to march into his room, the nightgown disappears.
Carol and Jerry sit reclined in deck chairs at the beach, but when they kiss, they are suddenly shown lying flat on a towel.
When Carol takes Jerry to the beach, at the end of the scene Jerry has the blue towel in his hand as he lies back into his seat. As Carol lies back next to him into her seat, the blue towel is now draped over the back of both their seats.
Jerry and Rebel both wrongly pronounce the Latin phrase, and the English subtitles misspell one word. The phrase should be Veritas et probitas super omnia. Both characters clearly drop the "p" and say instead, "robitas" which isn't a word.
When Tony Randall is poring over the mail that has come into the office from the TV stations regarding VIP, none of the stamps on the letters have been canceled.
At one point in the film, Jerry and Carol talk with an aquarium behind them, which holds a fish that is eaten by another as the scene ends. The "aquarium" is clearly just a short loop of film being played forwards and backwards in succession - the fish repeats the same two motions over and over until it is eaten.
When Carol meets Mr Miller for the first time after the big party, he's hung over and playing a bass. It is obvious that he's not actually playing it. Although we hear different notes being played, his left hand never moves and his right hand doesn't always match the rhythm.
Errors in geography
When "Rebel" (Edie Adams) testifies before the Ad Council, she says "Jerry" (Rock Hudson) considers the top of the Chrysler Building "Inspiration Point", because "it looks down on Madison Ave." The Chrysler Building looks down on Lexington Ave and because of buildings in the way, Madison Ave, two blocks away, is not clearly visible.
Boom mic visible
The shadow of the book mike is visible on the back of Carol Templeton's office chair.
