The Color of Money

Other mistake: When Vince was playing Grady in the Atlantic City tournament, Grady misses the eight ball in the side pocket while the seven ball is visible on the other side of the table. Grady should have been shooting the lowest number ball on the table.

Factual error: Cruise is breaking and if you watch the eight ball after the break it's following the 5 into a pocket at the end of the table closest to Tom. Now the 8 ball didn't necessarily go in because they focus on the one ball, but in the next frame shot, there's no way it could be at the opposite end of the table like they show. (00:29:20)
