Pacific Heights

Continuity mistake: When Melanie Griffith comes home from the jail, as she opens the door you can actually see there's no wall, it's just the door.

Continuity mistake: In the movie, Melanie Griffith's character's name is Patty Palmer. In the credits it's listed as "Patty Parker".

Plot hole: Hayes continues his harassment by calling the police and provokes Drake into assaulting him. When the police come and sees Hayes injured, they take Drake away immediately without asking any questions or investigating. No law authorities would ever take away someone with mere assumptions or without investigating, regardless of a history of Drake trying to force Hayes out by shutting off the utilities. Completely unrealistic.

Question: Why was Carter deliberately causing enough commotion to drive the other tenants out?

Chosen answer: If there are no other tenants, it means a loss of income for the owners. Carter, meanwhile was destroying the other apartment, making it useless to rent out. Patty and Drake need the income from both apartments that they are renting out in order to pay the monthly mortgage on their Victorian house.
