Naked Singularity

Factual error: Lea went into the (locked) Navigator in the tow pound (where she works) to get a sample of the stashed heroin. Craig, with Lea's help, was able to get to the Navigator before Ballena (who "won" the auction) and drive away from the tow pound. However, they would not have keys because towed impounded vehicles do not have keys (unless the keys were left in the vehicle, which would be unlikely in this case because $15 million worth of heroin was stashed inside).

Factual error: Unless left in the vehicle (not the case here), towed impounded vehicles do not have keys. Moreover, lacking keys, a valid registration, possibly proof of insurance, and new plates, vehicles bought at a NYPD auction are to be TOWED away. A newly-purchased auctioned vehicle, such as the Navigator in the movie, is "ticket-" or "citation-ready", not ready to be driven on the streets.


Continuity mistake: The pile of clothes Lea took out of the dryer and placed on the table were rearranged differently when the camera shifted to the opposite side. (00:41:52)

Trivia: "Singularities" are infinitely dense points. When something is compressed to the point of having a volume of ZERO, its density is thought of as being infinite - in other words, a "singularity." A typical example is the inside (center) of a black hole. A huge star - that once had a large mass - was reduced to nothing, but that "nothing" has a density that is infinite. It is at a point of "no return" (an event horizon), so is not visible. BUT "naked singularities" could exist - and be visible.
