Stupidity: The first time they go into Butler's garage next to the prison they are breaking in, but Butler never witnessed any break in clues to raise his suspicion. They replaced the lock with the exact same lock. It is clear that they didn't know that this was his access point to the prison, but once they found out there is no way to cover up that someone compromised the facility. How is Gerald sure that the bomb will remain under the meeting room while on his way back to the cell? He has a camera in the meeting room but in the bomb room he didn't bother to put one.
Character mistake: In the court scene Clyde mentions a case, Day v McDonough docket number 04-1325. This is a real case, but the docket number is 04-1324.
Clyde Shelton: I'm gonna pull the whole thing down. I'm gonna bring the whole fuckin' diseased, corrupt temple down on your head. It's gonna be biblical.
Question: I never really understood what the motive was when Clyde murdered his cellmate. Why did he do it? What did this act have to do with the plot of this movie?
