Hackers

Other mistake: In the scene when 'Gill' is in the restaurant you can see the restaurant worker swipe the bottom of the credit card, rather than the top where the magnetic strip is. (00:51:00)

Other mistake: Dade is standing with Phreak in the school hallway waiting for the sprinklers to go off. We know in the previous scene, Dade sets the sprinklers to go off at 9:30 am. After Dade opens his umbrella, the camera cuts to a close up of the sprinklers going off. The clock, above the doors of a classroom to the left, shows it's 10:30 am. (00:19:25)

Plot hole: When they are on the subway train, they are talking about the worm and the virus. They said that everything would happen on the 14th. A couple of scenes later, when they are setting up for the traffic lights to go crazy at 9:00, Dade looks at his watch. You can see the date as 10-18, which is 4 days afterwards. (01:17:15 - 01:22:50)

Trivia: When MGM/UA set up a website for Hackers, it was like dangling candy in front of a child. Soon after the site was established, it was hacked! A group calling itself the Internet Liberation Front managed to 'doodle' all over the photograph of Hackers stars Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller, and replaced verbiage, 'this is going to be an entertaining, fun promotional site for a movie,' with 'this is going to be a lame, cheesy promotional site for a movie!' The studio decided to maintain the site during the theatrical run of the movie in its altered form."

Answer: When I was in Jr. High even (6th-8th grade) they had classes titled "Office Aid" and all you did was literally help out the secretary's when they need it, otherwise you just sit on your ass and talk to people as they come in and out of the office. Or if you had a superior who was awesome, like I did, (the vice principal for my last name was basically on a first name basis with me haha) they would let you pretty much just roam the halls and walk around all you want as long as you don't have any teachers get mad at you for anything. It was definitely a very sought after class when I was in school.
