Corrected entry: At the end of the movie after Seth talks to Chris in the stairwell, Seth goes down a flight of stairs and passes Abby at her desk. However, in the beginning of the movie it is clear that her desk is right outside of the trading room, on the same floor. So how could he go down a flight and still be on the same floor?

Correction: At a certain point of time in the film, they pack their things saying they are moving upstairs (nicer offices), so he would have to go down in order to reach the reception level.

Corrected entry: In the last scene as Seth Davis is leaving the firm and is entering his car, it is parked normal in the parking spot. The next shot shows his car parked perpendicular, waiting for the Feds to go by.

Correction: You see him pull the car out, then wait for the feds to go by. That's why it is perpendicular.

Corrected entry: The movie is about "Boiler Rooms", a term for a set of illegal business practices which took place in the mid to late eighties. When Seth is arrested by the FBI, they tell him to go back to work the following day and back-up his "C Drive" to a floppy. When he leans down under his desk to insert a floppy into his computer, you can clearly see "32X" on his cd-rom drive. I'm not even sure computers HAD CD-ROM drives in the eighties, but regardless, they were most definitely not 32 times read capable.

Correction: The film's set in the present day.

In the scene where the FBI agents have taken Giovanni Ribisi in for interrogation, one of the FBI agents says at one point "...and I want the whole C:/ Drive backed up on a floppy.", which is pretty hard to do, if not impossible, unless you've got about a 5Mb hard disk drive (depending on compression levels). But later on in the scene where Ribisi is actually doing it, he does it in about 10 seconds...with a 1.44MB floppy.
