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.
