Risky Business

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?

Visible crew/equipment: While Lana and her friend are staying at Joel's house, after dinner, Lana goes upstairs to visit Joel in his room to see if he wants to go out for ice-cream. As Lana enters the room, the bedroom door swings open and you can see a crew member's hand catch the doorknob, just before the camera pans to the right.

Continuity mistake: While Tom Cruise is dancing in the front hall way and living room in his underwear, the lighting outside changes from daylight to night and sun rays appear on the rug during a part of it.
