Goofs

In the scene when Libby enters the BMW dealership and asks the salesman to run a credit check on Angela Greene, the salesman returns and provides her with a current address. However, in the next scene, when Libby attempts to find Angela in Colorado, a neighbor informs Libby that Angela died three years earlier. Therefore, there would have been no available credit report and current address for a person who had been dead for three years. See more »
