Tommy Boy

Revealing mistake: When Tommy is trying to bend the car door back you can see a wire holding the door in place so that Tommy can hit it as hard as he wants and it won't go back in place.

Revealing mistake: When Richard (David Spade) vacuums the "moths", you can clearly see they are little balls of cotton or other material being blown by a chute of air to make them appear as if they were flying.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where they are on the plane, right after the old women comes out of a stinky bathroom, you can tell it's not the back of David Spade's head when he goes in for the 3 sec change. (01:16:00)

Revealing mistake: When Tommy runs into the glass door after a successful sale, he leaves a mark on the glass, clearly from makeup for filming, not just an oily face.

Continuity mistake: During the sales trip the two main characters stop at a gas station to get gas. during this stop Tommy bends the door back and after some struggle gets it to the normal door position. Before Richard gets back to the car however there is a shot of the door all dented up but in place. When Richard pulls the door off it falls to the ground and there isn't a single dent on it. (Also, is it me or does it seem a little ridiculous that someone that loves his car so much didn't notice the large dent down the edge of the door as he faced it while walking from the station to the car?)

Trivia: When Tommy meets his "Stepmother," he says something like "Dad, she's a 10." That's because the actress, Bo Derek, starred in the movie "10" (1980).
