Corrected entry: In scenes showing Tom Cruise driving in a cab to the pivotal orgy scene, apparently in or near Glen Cove, Long Island, the road markings are clearly from the UK film locations in which the film was shot.

Correction: The night highway shot is from the interchange between the Grand Central Parkway and the Long Island Expressway (signs say LaGuardia, Midtown Tunnel, Eastern LI). I see no markings on the other streets that would be characteristically British. While most of the movie was shot in the UK, many of the exteriors were shot in and around NYC.

Corrected entry: In the final scene between Tom Cruise and Sidney Pollack you can see Sidney standing by the pool table. As the camera cuts between the two actors, one of the balls keeps shifting its position.

Correction: Of course the ball is switching position... he is playing slowly with the ball.

Corrected entry: At the very end of the movie Tom Cruise is talking to his wife in the toy store. If you look while he is talking, his collar moves from open to closed then to open again.

Correction: Look more closely. When his arms are by his side, the collar is open, but when he crosses his arms over his chest, the collar pushes together and appears to be closed. He unfolds his arms again, and the collar opens again.


Corrected entry: During the scene when Tom Cruse's character drives back to the orgy house for the second time, you see a sign showing a interchange for interstate highway 495. This highway is in eastern Massachusetts, not on Long Island where the orgy house supposedly is. (It would cost more than $50 to take a taxi to Massachusetts.)

Correction: There's also an I-495 on Long Island.

Continuity mistake: At the orgy a man walks through a door with a naked woman on each arm, then the camera cuts so that Tom Cruise is in the shot with the man and two women approaching him. In this shot one of the women is a different woman from before.

Alice Harford: When she is having her little titties squeezed, do you think she ever has any fantasies about what handsome Dr. Bill's dickie might be like?

Question: Isn't it common knowledge that Nicole found Tom's mask and put it on his pillow? I always wondered why Tom freaked out so much when he finds it. Is he afraid that Nicole knows where the mask is used? Or that someone else placed it there? And unless I missed something, how come this was never discussed between the two? You'd think Nicole would be asking why he left this in his safe?


Chosen answer: I think someone from the freaky orgy broke in and put the mask on the pillow to warn Cruise's character to keep his mouth shut. That's why Cruise's character is so upset-they got into his home and his safe.

I always assumed that she was a member of the orgy party. She was letting him know that she was there.

No, she wasn't.
