Pump up the Volume

Factual error: When Christian Slater is talking on the phone in one scene, it is clear it is a cordless phone. When he slams it down, however, it makes that "ding" sound like older phones that really have a bell in them.

Factual error: Upon finding the cordless phone's base in the shed outside Mark's neighbor's house, the cop says, "There's the transmitter, which means the receiver could be in any house within 1,000 yards of here." I noticed no amplifier or anything to soup up the transmitter, and I know of no store-bought cordless phone with a range even remotely close to 1,000 yards. (01:09:05)
