Corrected entry: The plot of this movie depends on Sandra's character receiving and particularly sending a floppy disk by FedEx. But she has obvious high speed Internet access. She could have sent the file by the 'Net. And she obviously has the technical chomps to package it and send it safely. There is just no logical reason that someone so technically savvy would have sent a virus by FedEx rather than transfer it electronically. And just in case someone wants to suggest she feared anti-virus filters, simply encrypting the file would have protected it from any anti-virus filter and only allow it to be opened by the intended recipient, much safer than sending it by FedEx.Frov
Corrected entry: When Angela is at the airport and asked whether she is Ruth Marx, the woman asking got the information from the computer, including her address, which was the correct one. So the house actually belonged to Ruth Marx, but the realtor said that the records claimed Angela Bennett to be the owner. (00:39:00 - 00:42:00)Mr.Phalange
Corrected entry: When Angela gets to the computer show and emails the FBI, she types in the email BCG@FBI.JUSTICE - presumably, the BCG is Ben, the friend of her shrink. But he only called Ben, he never gave her Ben's email address.
Corrected entry: When Angela arrives at the hotel after leaving the hospital, the desk clerk tells her "Angela Bennett checked out last Saturday night." The only information on the screen - we see him reading from it - is that "This guest has checked out." There is no reference to any dates, times, room number, billing, or anything else that a hotel reservations system would include on such a screen (even back in 1995 when the movie was released). He couldn't know the day she checked out, unless he remembered the guest personally, in which case he wouldn't be checking the computer. (00:39:05)
Corrected entry: Even though Angela loses all her belongings in Mexico, she returns to her car parked at the airport. Was she going to try & hotwire it without her keys? (00:41:30)
Corrected entry: When Jack takes his gun from Angela (on the boat after their tryst), why doesn't he realize it's empty (Angela has removed the clip) until he tries to use it? He should have noticed the weight difference.
Corrected entry: When Jack and Angela are on the boat, Jack puts a gun in his jacket pocket. A few minutes later, Jack drops his jacket to the floor but the noise that you hear when it hits the floor surely isn't loud enough for a gun to be in his pocket?
Corrected entry: When Angela and the shrink are in the hotel just after he finds her, the bag with clothes is on the floor, then by magic, it's on a chair.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Angela goes to the Cathedral office, when she enters the building it is daylight outside, and daylight is coming in from the windows when she enters the office. In the few minutes that it takes her to empty the office with the fire alarm, it has turned to night-time outside when she looks out the window.
Jack: God, we're pathetic, aren't we?
Angela: Excuse me?
Jack: Well, we're here. We're sitting on the most perfect beach in the world, and all we can think about is-.
Angela: "Where I can hook up my modem?"
Jack: Yeah, exactly.
Trivia: The movie was a not so subtle plug for Apple/Macintosh. The director/producer Irwin Winkler is a "Mac man." All the personal computers Angela uses are Macs. Even at the end, the computer conference was filmed at the Moscone center in San Francisco and is a tribute/simulation to the main MacWorld conference which is held every January at the Moscone. The plot is based on the good guys using Macs and the bad guys on PC's/Windows. Still today, but especially raging back in the 1990's, was the huge Mac rivalry with Windows.Luna Negra
