When Danville shoots the suspect with her Glock 19 with the magazine removed, the slide visibly Locks open. This kind of weapon does not do that, unless there is an empty magazine in the magazine well. See more »


Lindsay Monroe Messer: Hey Sid, have you ever seen someone punch herself in the face?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Uh, no... Are you going to punch yourself in the face?
Lindsay Monroe Messer: Uh, let me try that again. Have you ever had a victim on your table who's exhibited self-inflicted punch wounds to the face?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Uh, well, I've pretty much seen it all, but no, I have not come across anyone who has successfully punched herself to death.

Plot holes - Spoiler
11 April 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

More holes than a lace tablecloth. OK Glaring hole 1 - the senator kills the call girl after conveniently hitting her with his near priceless umbrella (to leave a clue) then finishes the job with a nearby rock. Er sorry... this senator is so aggrieved that the call girl's tainted evidence has let his daughter's rapist go free that he kills her? If he feels so strongly (strongly enough to commit murder) why doesn't he just kill the rapist? Glaring hole 2 - Jo and another (very recently identified ) victim go to the girls apartment for evidence and the rapist is WAITING FOR THEM! How the f&%k did he know? A mole in the department? The girl set them up? Not explained. Still, thankfully, all that forensic evidence, the thousands of dollar's worth of equipment and the thousand's of dollar's of man-hours lead to the capture, conviction and incarceration of the rapist- er...no - the rapist is shot by a cop with a badge BECAUSE HE LETS HER! I tentatively venture to suggest that a f&%king shed load of money could have been saved if they had just shot the f&%ker whilst trying to escape.
