The parade scene at the very end is supposed to be taking place in New York, but if you look at the firefighters' uniforms and the emblem on the firetruck, they are clearly from the Chicago Fire Department.

When Dave buys the coffee in the Arby's, the total goes from $.72 to $.80. That would place the sales tax somewhere between 10.4% & 11.7%. No state, including Illinois where this movie takes place, has a sales tax that high on food.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

If you freeze the scene immediately after Spritz deletes his book Breaking Point, you can see there is still a Word file on his desktop labeled Breaking Point, so he didn't actually completely delete it. However, when a file is deleted by one application, such as Word, other applications, such as Windows Explorer (what displays the desktop icons,) don't update instantly. Sometime it can take several seconds for the changes to be reflected in other programs. Also, the icon on the desktop could be a shortcut to the actual file in My Documents, in which case the icon will not disappear automatically. It would have to be deleted separately.
