Revealing mistake: In the scene when Joey got busted by the FBI for hacking, he was taking a shower. They then took him to the living room and sat him down on couch with nothing but a towel wrapped around him. As they confiscated Lucy the computer for evidence, he lunged over the couch to try to save her/it. The towel falls off and his butt is in plain view, but his genitals don't exist. Instead, there is a flesh colored pad concealing his privates from the viewers. (00:32:40)
Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film when Joey gets arrested and is being walked down the stairs outside. If you look in the front halfway down the stairs you can see a guy holding a brown box, but when the camera cuts to a face shot of the black man in front of the camera the man holding the box has disappeared, but he should still be visible because he was only half way down the stairs. (00:31:55)
Ramon Sanchez: So, uh, what's your interest in Kate Libby, eh? Academic? Purely sexual?
Dade Murphy: Homicidal.
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."
