Continuity mistake: When the panel of doctors are being queried by Aames, for the second time of the loop of this interview, the black box containing the mask can clearly be seen in the bottom right hand corner on the desk when the camera swings to the main doctor. When the camera pans back again, it is gone, and it is only after this that the assistant brings in the box.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tom and Penelope are lying together on her sofa there is a table to the left with a lamp and some wooden artists figures. These move position between shots, with different things happening with their arms.
Visible crew/equipment: When Tom Cruise is standing alone in the hall at the ground floor of the LE building, screaming for "Tech Support..." the camera pans around him 360 degrees. When the camera pans over Tom's left shoulder, you can see the shadows of the camera crew on his jacket. After the panning has come to a stop, you can see the reflection of two or three crew-members in the glass walls behind him.
Trivia: In the opening scene at David Ames' apartment as he is getting out of bed, a poster of the Bob Dylan album that he later recreates with Sofia is hanging on his bedroom wall.
Trivia: At Tom Cruise's birthday party, when he is hugging everyone and they are wishing him a happy birthday, you can see Steven Spielberg walk up to him in a brown coat and a Pre-Crime baseball cap (from Minority Report) and say, "Happy birthday ya son of a b****," but in a friendly manner of course.
David: I want to live a real life... I don't want to dream any longer.
Julie: Why did you tell Brian I was your "Fuckbuddy"?
David: I never said that.
Sofía: I have to get some sleep. Truthfully, I also work as a dental assistant.
David: Boy, am I going to the wrong dentist.
Question: Does anyone know the name/artist of the song that plays near the end of the movie when David (Tom) is about to jump and while he is falling? I was thinking Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space by Spritualized, but it turns out that's from a different part.
