Continuity 

When the scene of the guy singing karaoke in the bar right before Jake and Dooley walk in, the camera scans and you see an old guy among the people watching the singer and moving to the music, then you see the same old guy sitting at the bar when Jake and Dooley are discussing the guy who just beat up three other guys. He moved from one scene to the next within seconds.

During the first party (when Jake forcibly ejects a "wanker" male guest), there is a continuity error between when we first see Jake angrily coming at the guest (from the inside, in the kitchen) and the shot when we see the guest ejected (from the exterior of the house). The error is that from the inside we see one exit from the home (just to the left of the kitchen), and from the outside we see the guest being ejected from somewhere entirely different (looks like from the opposite end of the home entirely, because you can't even see the kitchen windows which look out onto the backyard).

During the opening scenes, Beth Heke is walking past the yard where some men are working out with weights. One man is "spotting" the other man who is doing bench-presses. As the camera changes angles, the man who is spotting changes from spotting with his palms facing down to actually doing "curls" with the bar that the other man is pressing up and down. Each time there is a change in the camera angle, his grip on the bar goes back and forth from palms-up/curling to palms-down/shoulder shrugs. This happens several times.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

During Grace's funeral, Beth is sitting by her dead daughter telling her a story about how she really could keep a promise (and return her daughter to her rightful Maori homeland). But, we can see the actress, who plays Grace Heke, clearly trying to act lifeless during this death scene, as her chest very slightly heaves and her eye lids flutter, a little.
