During the movie, when the Caller warns Stu not to move, he says "You can get shot 41 times just for pulling out your wallet". This is a reference to the killing of Amadou Diallo, an innocent man who matched the description of a serial rapist. The police approached him and he pulled out his wallet (presumably to show them his ID), they mistakenly thought it was a gun and the four officers on scene fired 41 rounds at him. He was shot 19 times and died as a result of his injuries. See more »

I already told you this is a private conversation. Now, what the fuck do you want?
I just want you to know, that it's safe outside the booth.
No, it's not.
Always get out of the booth. I like in the fucking booth. It's my whole world now, this is my booth and I'm not coming out ever. You hear me? Never.

This is the kind of movie that is rare these days. It didn't cost an arm and a leg to make, it stars some good actors and the story line was plausible.
The Hitchcock influence is obvious and the pacing of the film was just right. This is the best work of director Schumacher. The lead could have been played by any yuppie looking actor but Colin Farrell does a good job anyway in a role that puts you in his character's place.
It's hard to make a movie work when it takes place in a confined space with few characters, but when those movies succeed, it shows. And that's how it is with "Phone Booth."
