Other mistake: Marcia Sindell calls Buster to check on Paul's whereabouts. She doesn't tell him what firm she works for, what city she's calling from, or her phone number. Yet, Buster says when he gets some information on Paul, he'll call her back and they both hang up.

Other mistake: When Annie shoots the sheriff in the back, he fall forwards on the staircase where he stood. Annie walks down without moving around the corpse of the sheriff. She just advances forward as if he isn't there.
