Scenes in the movie, and in Razor and Blades show, depict using a cassette recorder to play tones into a phone to make free calls. Coins dropped into pay phones used to trigger specific sounds that actually could be duplicated and used to fool pay phones into thinking you had paid for a call. This was also accomplished using a device called a tone generator. Also known as a Red Box. See more »
When swimming in the rooftop pool at the end, Kate and Dade's ears are underwater as they talk to each other. They would still be able to hear each other speak, since water transmits sound waves just like air, albeit somewhat distorted to the human ear. Their voices would be audible to one another, just not as clear as if they were completely out of the water. See more »

So what if it is unrealistic... It's still fun to watch.
Ok, I've read lots of the reviews here. I'm a computer person by trade, and I'll agree that the effects, and even some of the terminology is WAY off. But that's not the point of this movie. It never claims to be a documentary, just a fun movie about good vs. bad, and good wining. It just happens to take place over the internet. I think that this movie has just gotten a bump rap, it's the perfect B movie for lazy Saturday nights...
