Goofs

In the plane Robert Green (Alec Baldwin) tells his passengers that his new watch is a GMT (dual time zone) watch. However at the end of the movie we see that the actual watch of Robert is an Omega Seamaster 300M Chrono Diver and this type of watch isn't a dual time watch. See more »

Charles Morse: Come on, you saved my life.
Robert Green: Buy me something nice when we get home.
Charles Morse: How'd you like your coffee?
Robert Green: Huh. I like my coffee like I like my women.
