Goofs

At the end of the film, when Jacob/Money receives the letter from his son, it's addressed to 'CA Rehabilitation Center' in Norco, California. Indeed, there is a California Rehabilitation Center in Norco; however, it's mainly a rehabilitation center for non-violent, low-level drug addicts--definitely NOT a facility where a hardened, gang-connected, violent criminal would ever be housed.

Bottles: The fact is, we all started out as someone's little angel. And a place like this forces us to become warriors or victims. Nothing in between can exist here.
