Risky Business

Factual error: When asked by the Princeton interviewer what he plans to major in, Joel replies "business." Princeton does not offer an undergraduate degree in business.

Factual error: Tom Cruise smokes a few times in the movie. He has a pack of Marlboro regular which normally have a brown filter, but whenever he pulls a cigarette out of the pack it has a WHITE filter, this leads me to believe it's a Marlboro light coming out of a Marlboro regular package, to protect his film-star lungs.

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?
