Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie, Blake Lively's, character is known as "Krista" Coughlin. Once the cop calls in her DUI, it's called in as "Coughlin, Christina."

Correction: Krista could easily be a shortened version of her full name she prefers to go by. I go by Jon to everyone I know, but my given name is Jonathan.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene where Doug gives Claire the necklace, she calls him Ben.

Correction: She does not call him Ben she does in fact say Doug.

Corrected entry: Near the end, when Doug drives the MBTA Bus to the train station and then boards the train, he is actually at the Anderson Woburn station north of Boston, where the trains only run to the north of Boston and not south, such as to Florida.

Correction: Since it's never stated he's going directly to Florida, this isn't a mistake. To avoid capture he will most likely take routes in multiple directions to hide his final destination.

Corrected entry: Krista was never given the details of the Fenway Park robbery, how could she have shared them with special agent Frawley?


Correction: Her brother helped plan the heist. She could have learned about it from him.

S. Ha

Corrected entry: When Desmond Elden is shot in the head in the garage of the ballpark, the SWAT member pulls the charging handle of the rifle which wastes a round that hasn't been used. Even if he ran out of ammo he would not have to pull the charging handle but simply slap the bolt release on the side of the rifle after changing magazines.

Correction: Not necessarily. It's entirely possible that the rifle jammed and the trooper pulled the charging handle to clear it. Unless you can see from the side that the bolt is open or closed, this mistake can't be confirmed.

Corrected entry: There is no such company as "Boston Ambulance" (as seen on the ambulance and uniforms in the park scene). The city is serviced by Boston EMS, which also doesn't use any of the converted van-style ambulances.

Correction: Because this is a fictional film, and not being billed as a documentary, I don't see how this qualifies as a mistake. In the Boston of the movie, Boston Ambulance IS a company, and it doesn't change throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Doug and his brother are talking outside the cemetery, the zipper on Doug's jacket goes from being almost completely zipped to about halfway zipped without him touching it.

Doug MacRay: I need your help. I can't tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it later, and we're gonna hurt some people.
