Goofs

Character error 

The stolen Mona Lisa is much too big to be the real one. However, being a con artist, Tina might be lying to Clark.

Continuity 

At the first time Clark talks to Carmine, the Carmine's hands change position repeatedly between shots.
In the large room with Greenwald and Simpson, when Clark is seen from the front, there is a big barrel just behind him. But when he is seen from behind, the barrel is away from him.
When Carmine Sabatini comes and visits the dorm room, the closet door that Clark closes right before he arrives is seen partially open and completely shut in different shots from different angles.

Factual errors 

The Komodo dragons are actually Salvadori's monitors.
In Clark's dorm room, there is a poster of Buster Keaton on the wall. In the ending credits, it is identified as "Charlie Chaplin".
The Komodo Dragon is an endangered species, however not nearly as endangered as presented in The Freshman. Its population is stable, and it is in no danger from man as it lives on an uninhabited island. About 3000 are estimated to live in the wild.
When Clark is talking to his mother on the phone about the Komodo Dragon, she leafs through an animal book, asks if it begins with a 'K', and reads off a few animal names in the 'K' section on the way to Komodo Dragon - one of which is Coatimundi which begins with 'C', not 'K'.
The 40 or so "gourmets" pay Brando's character $350K per plate for their meal, or $14 million. The money is later seen in $100 bills and partially fills a small leather satchel. Actually $14 million in $100-bill stacks would equal the thickness of 280 reams of paper, or an amount that would probably fill 15-20 of those leather satchels.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Clark takes the Amtrak train from Vermont to New York he arrives in Grand Central Station. Although today these trains arrive at Penn Station, when the movie was filmed they did not.

Revealing mistakes 

The car that Victor gets for Clark, and a white limo which is at the Gourmet Club, have the same license plate, VKY 722.
