The movie, _Hackers_, sucks. The computer depictions are typical Hollywood: flashy but wrong. The social engineeering aspects are correct: guessing passwords, shoulder surfing, etc. So's some of the phone phreaking stuff, as far as I know.

The weirdest thing is that Angelina Jolie's character looks just like Jolene Blalock's in _Star Trek: Enterprise_. Same eyes and hair.

And a reference to Aho, Sethi, Ullman's Dragon book (compilers), which is cool.
