Angela Bennett's favorite drink is similar to a martini, mixing gin and vermouth, but garnished with a pearl onion instead of an olive. It is called a Gibson, likely a reference to William Gibson, who is recognized as the godfather of cyberpunk fiction. He coined the term 'cyberspace' in his 1984 novel Neuromancer. See more »
When Angela is asked to sign papers under the name "Ruth Marx" one part of the "x" is small and the other is long. Later, when she is showing the form to a police officer the "x" is clearly different. See more »

I saw this film just last night, and I liked it. I know a lot about the Internet and so I DID notice the factual errors, but I was able to ignore them and enjoy the suspense. Sandra Bullock was good, and Jeremy Northam was creepy as the bad guy, mostly because he was so goodlooking and smooth that he was hard to hate.
I'd give it an 8 out of 10 for good suspense and an interesting look at the Internet when it was just beginning.
