20 Movie Myths Debunked

5) I Want My Phone Call

The Myth: Everyone is entitled to one phone call following their arrest, regardless of who they are or how much shit they’ve blown up.

Seen In:
Robocop, The Matrix, Hackers and so on…

The Reality: One of the most pervasive of all Hollywood myths, in that it seemingly has absolutely zero basis in fact.

Some prisons will allow you to use the phone, others won’t. If you started giving the guard ball-ache about how you want “my phone call”, you’d likely feel the thick end of his night stick, as he’s under no obligation to do anything.

So unless you’re a criminal mastermind, with a bomb secretly secreted inside another inmate’s belly, you’re probably best off keeping quiet.
