Oz's computer is shown to be downloading at 115200 baud over a dialup modem. Not only is this not possible (dialup topped out at 33.6/56k), but the modem shown is v.23. v.23 modems operate at 1200 baud (1.2k) and were already very outdated by the time of this movie (33.6k) [v.34] was already in wide use.

We've seen movies about crafty teenagers playing a cat-and-mouse game with thieves so many times that it all gets blurred. But "Masterminds" is pretty entertaining. When shyster Rafe Bentley (a mustachioed Patrick Stewart) takes a school hostage, troublemaker Oswald Paxton (Vincent Kartheiser) decides to make Rafe's life a living hell. In a way, the movie is mostly a series of gags, but well done gags. This movie probably won't have any major effect on the cinematic landscape, but it doesn't pretend to be anything that it isn't. It's pure, unadulterated fun.
Maybe if thieves ever take over a place, I'll just use some of the gags that I learned from "Masterminds".
