Goofs

When Tommy is in the shower preparing to shave he has his mom's pink disposable razor at the ready. Disposable razors didn't make it to the US market until 1976, the pink ladies version not until later.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

At the beginning of the school dance scene, there is a kid screaming "Sabbath. Sabbath." Later on, the same kid is shown to be the DJ, and when he is changing records, you can hear his voice still screaming "Sabbath. Sabbath." in the background, even though he is not saying it.

Continuity 

When Tommy picks up his mother's cigarettes out of the toilet, one of them very obviously breaks in half. Yet a few shots later, they are all unbroken and normal.

While Tommy throws pages of his Bible out the window, you can see a kid laughing (The one who yelled "Sabbath"), and in the next shot, he is laughing again.

In the butcher shop, about 12 minutes into the movie, a sign reads "Ground chuck, 39 cents a pound." Right after, when Pappas and Tommy arrive at the old lady's apartment, they tell her it's 69 cents per pound, and give her that total. Since Tommy immediately handed her back the $10 she accidentally tipped him with instead of a $1, obviously they weren't trying to scam her.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Reverend Duncan says that the school's Bible class is being renamed "Ethics" due to requirements of church/state separation, even though a private school like this one would not be subject to church-state issues. This statement is meant to introduce his character's fondness for "pulling legs" and making bizarre nonsensical statements.

Revealing mistakes 

When Tommy is hiding under the hospital bed after euthanizing his mother, his feet are sticking out the side of the bed. The people working on his mother (who for film purposes have to be unaware of his presence) have to move around his feet they are sticking out so far.
