Did You Know?
Screenwriter Richard D'Ovidio
got the idea for the film when his wife saw an interview with a 911 operator on TV. Researching the subject, he visited the Los Angeles Metropolitan Communications Dispatch Center and was surprised to find that it had its own back-up generators, bulletproof windows and a moat. See more
Because this is set in Los Angeles, when the gas station attendant is dosed with gas via the pump, this could not happen. All California pumps (to include any registered "private" pumps) are fitted with SMOG reducing sleeves. When the sleeve becomes disengaged from vehicle, the pump automatically stops the flow of gas. The pump used for filming is obviously not fitted with this sleeve and continues to flow after being removed from vehicle. See more
