Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film when Joey gets arrested and is being walked down the stairs outside.

When MGM/UA set up a website for Hackers, it was like dangling candy in front of a child. Soon after the site was established, it was hacked! A group calling itself the Internet Liberation Front managed to 'doodle' all over the photograph of Hackers stars Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller, and replaced verbiage, 'this is going to be an entertaining, fun promotional site for a movie,' with 'this is going to be a lame, cheesy promotional site for a movie!' The studio decided to maintain the site during the theatrical run of the movie in its altered form."

Easter egg: When on the menu screen, move the cursor to highlight the Hackers logo. Press enter, and your will be taken to a screen with a choice of four passwords.
