Corrected entry: In the scene after Joel drops his parents off at the airport, he pours himself a whisky and coke. During the closeup he is pouring "New Coke" into the glass but when the shot changes he is setting down a can of Coca-Cola Classic.

Correction: It couldn't have been "New Coke" that he was pouring in, because this movie was released in 1983, and New Coke didn't come out until 1985.

Corrected entry: In several instances in the film, it is stated that Joel scored a 597 on the Math portion of his SATs. SAT scores are always multiples of ten. He could have scored a 590 or a 600, but not a 597.

Correction: I got a 753 verbal and 635 math in my SAT .

Continuity mistake: In the movie's final moments when Tom Cruise is buying back all his household items, the lady in the cargo bay says "that's everything," except for the crystal egg she throws out into the yard for Tom to catch. You can clearly see many more items left in the truck. But when the truck pulls away seconds later, nothing is left in the cargo bay except our villain sitting on a chair. Where did everything else go?
