During the "pool party" scene the plastic lei that Mitch is wearing goes from red to blue and back again.

The synopsis on the back of the most recent DVD version differs significantly from the original VHS, especially with regards to a mistake as to Mitch's age. It reads, "Mitch" (Gabe Jarret) is the 16-year-old wiz kid..." Mitch was 15-years-old as was actor Gabe Jarret when the movie was released (born Jan. 1 1970).

After Knights confrontation with Kent about the lazer "meltdown", Knight kicks the fridge door in the vending area and the freezer door opens. There is a can of pop in the freezer door. That can gets knocked onto the floor when Knight kicks the door while celebrating. The next scene the can appears back in the freezer door.

In the scene with Jordans book page turner, the metal arm on the left page is holding the page down and it suddenly vanishes.

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Real Genius".
