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.
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.
