Factual error: In the scene when Maggie goes to the building rooftop to set a listening device to eavesdrop on Anton and Linda, she sets up what is presented as a parabolic microphone. However, the device she sets up is actually a radio frequency (RF) micro-wave style antenna that would be used for point to point RF communication. An audio parabolic microphone would be a round, solid dish shaped design to reflect the audio waves to a highly sensitive microphone at the focal point of the dish. The RF antenna used in the film would not capture any audio.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Laura deliberately breaks the boardwalk lamps, she picks up rocks from the beach and then throws them at the lamp bulbs. However, the first rock thrown misses the lamp bulb completely and in fact, passes behind the lamp post. Of course, the bulb breaks anyway because the explosive charge used to break the bulb was detonated remotely.
