Goofs

Right before discovering Bergstrom's mis-diagnosis of Aids, she connects to a system using the telnet command with an email address that was written on a card she had taken from Devlin's wallet. It is impossible to establish a connection using telnet with an email address. The only way to connect using telnet is with a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) or IP address (and/or a TCP port number). Once the telnet connection is established, you can however login to a system using an email address. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Alan Champion: I figured you'd be hungry, so I stopped on the way over. I got your favorite, Chinese.
Angela: Um, it's your favorite. I never really cared for it, remember?
Dr. Alan Champion: Ah, it's immaterial, I knew it was somebody's favorite.

Dated Very Badly Due To Technology
7 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Net whilst an entertaining movie, sadly suffers as a movie of it's time. The pc's, the laptops, the computer images and games, the pagers and the mobile phones, and not to mention the dial up modems.

Plot In A Paragraph: Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) is a computer expert, who works from home. This beautiful analyst is never far from a computer and modem. The only activity she has outside of computers is visiting her mother, who suffers with Alzheimer's disease. She is sent her a program with a weird glitch for her to de-bug. Her life then turns into a nightmare, her records and identity are erased from existence and she is given a new identity, one with a police record.

I enjoyed it when it was released, but had never revisited it. Watching it now with my kids, 15 and 8 they laughed at all the ancient devices, and it detracted from the movie and a good performance from Bullock. She was gorgeous then and even now she remains one of the most talented and beautiful women in movies, and her ladylike sexiness is in rare supply. Any movie becomes promising just by having her name in it's cast.
