Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
The part of Susanna had originally been written as a WASPish blonde woman. By having a foreigner play the role, whose native tongue wasn't English, it allowed for Tom Cruise's character to do a lot of exposition.
Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?
Lenny: Uh, yes sir, they're finally, uh, clearing EPA; uh, just one or two more days.
Charlie: Three times...
When Charlie, Raymond and Susanna are in the casino on the way to Raymond's date, just before Charlie is asked to see head of security you can see in the mirrored pillar the reflection of a woman motioning extras to walk past the camera.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
