Panic Room

Easter egg: On the three-disc special edition, there are 3 hidden features. On Disc 2, enter the 'Production' menu, then highlight main menu and press right to highlight a hidden symbol. On the same disc, in 'Pre-Production', go into 'Prep', highlight 'Safe Cracking School' and press right. On Disc 3, go to the fourth page of 'Visual Effects', highlight 'CGI Propane Tank' and press right.

Factual error: After the intruders flood the panic room with propane, Jody Foster's character gets a lighter and ignites the propane causing it to burn along the ceiling. This would be impossible as propane is heavier than air and would sink to the floor rather than rise up to the ceiling. Lighting a flame in that room should have caused anyone in the room and on the floor to be engulfed in flames almost instantly.

Answer: There could be a serious major event happening nearby where all the resources needed to be sent ASAP. The 911 operator had to prioritize and assumed the current caller's emergency - whatever it was - was less urgent. There could have been a shortage of operators for whatever reason.
