Corrected entry: On the tape of the 911 call regarding the murder a boy says "They want to know her name" to a supposed accomplice. However one of the two boys who are accused of the phone call and murder at the end of the film is deaf, and the two boys communicate with sign language - the boy who could talk would never say anything to the other. (01:44:30 - 02:01:10)
Corrected entry: When Jimmy is pouring a drink for Dave's wife in the kitchen, he begins pouring from a frontal shot. It moves to a shot over his shoulder, and back to the front shot again, where he finally stops pouring. All this time, we can hear the liquor continuously being poured, but if he had poured for that long, the glass would have overflowed. When he finally places the bottle down on the table, the glass is less than half full. (00:54:25)
Corrected entry: The scene where the girls are dancing on the bar is filmed at a bar in Jamaica Plain which is completely on the other side of Boston from East Boston where the film is supposed to take place. It's not exactly a "neighborhood" bar for people living in East Boston.
Corrected entry: When Tim Robbins is in the bar with the girls dancing on the bar, he and his friend are watching the Red Sox game on TV. The audio game commentary heard is actually that of a Red Sox radio broadcast, not television. The two voices heard are those of Joe and Jerry, they only do radio broadcasts. (00:14:40)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sean and Whitey are walking and talking (just after Jimmy and Annabeth leave the hospital), Sean states that himself, Jimmy and Roy were childhood friends. He should have stated that himself, Jimmy and Dave were childhood friends.
Corrected entry: They keep mentioning that parks are State Police jurisdiction. They're not. Boston-area parks are run by the MDC, and crimes would be prosecuted by either the Municipal Police or the Boston Police. Only crimes in state parks would be prosecuted by the State Police.
Corrected entry: When David(as a young boy) is told to get into the car the second time by the man, the man says to him "Get the f*** in." and pounds his fist on the car. In the flashback of the very same scene, the man says "Get in". Maybe flashbacks have mistakes as well?
Corrected entry: The young boys accidentally shoot Jimmy's daughter, then chase her down and kill her to keep her from identifying them. If they are so afraid of detection and if the girl's already dead, what on earth could be their purpose in calling 9-1-1?
Corrected entry: In the parade scene at the end of the movie there is a child in a stroller holding a SpongeBob SquarePants doll. SpongeBob SquarePants was not even thought about at the time the movie took place.
Corrected entry: No DNA test was conducted on the blood found in David's car most, especially the trunk. Had this been done it would have conclusively shown that the blood was not Penn's daughter; and possibly saved David's life.
