Cocktail Movie Behind The Scenes

Cocktail Goofs

Cocktail Picture
Ahhh... the 80's....


"Er, someone wasn't on top of their game that day..."
See the goofs, blunders and plain ole mistakes in the 1988 Romantic Comedy movie starring Tom Cruise, Elisabeth Shue, Bryan Brown More Cast

We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.

When Brian takes the Polaroid of Doug, note the pose Doug is in. When they show the picture itself, he's in a different pose.

The bottles being thrown into the air during cocktail making are not always the same bottles being caught.

Near the end of the movie, when Brian goes to Jordan's building, notice the length of his hair in the lobby. When he gets upstairs and confronts Jordan's father, the length of his hair changes, briefly. Eventually it returns to the same length.

In the scene when Doug and Brian are drunk and singing there is a puddle of water at the bottom of the stairs that Doug falls down; but when he falls down the stairs, the puddle is no longer there.

They say in one of the scenes that Louis xiii is a bourbon. It is a cognac!

Throughout the whole movie, Tom Cruise has different lengths of hair! Sometimes it's short or past his ears.

Users have written in saying things like "Why wouldn't his hair change? There are significant gaps in time throughout the movie. It takes place over a period of months and years, not days."

But, as Josh rightly points out, Tom Cruise's changing hair length is a continuity error, not a deliberate device. His hair changing over the course of the movie would not be a problem, but the length is markedly different even in the same scene at some points.

In the opening scene, it shows Brian (Cruise) and Army pals chasing a bus down the road.

The car they are in has "Army" plates, and Brian (Cruise) is flagging the bus down through the open sunroof. Sorry, but official Army cars are equipped with as few options as possible to save on cost. So there is NO WAY an Army-use official vehicle has a sunroof! Clearly done for "dramatic" effect.

Also Cruise's hair is WAY too long for a guy who is in the Army (or who has just recently gotten out).

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Cocktail".
