Cellular

Factual error: When Ryan is waiting for Jason Statham to call him back, the ringtone heard is polyphonic. The type of phone Ryan has plays monophonic ringtones only.

Factual error: In the film, Ryan is supposed to be going to LAX, but when he enters the airport, you can see that it is not LAX. (00:41:00)

Factual error: Mooney is trying to distract Bayback in the Martins' house. He knocks the firstborn with the goldfish in it over, smashing it. Then proceeds to shoot and kill her. In a later scene the same fish is seen in a wine glass as he hands it to an EMT. No way it would still be alive after being out of water so long.

Other mistake: The video quality on the phone would not be as good as the film makes out. In fact, as far as I know, no mobile phone has that quality. The fact that they would then be using the video he filmed off the camcorder as evidence just makes no sense, as you definitely wouldn't be able to see anything on the phone anyway.

Ryan: You know, it does me no good to hand over the video tape and then you guys turn around and take us out.
Greer: I swore I wouldn't do that.
Ryan: Like you swore "to protect and serve"?

Trivia: The movie the kidnappers are watching is "Final Destination 2" (2003), which was directed by David R. Ellis. Also there is an announcement at the aiport for "Volé Flight 180 to Paris," a reference to the original "Final Destination" (2000). Both are New Line productions.
