There is a pivotal scene where Redford et al. put down Scrabble tiles and spell out the name 'Seatec Astronomy', and then start rearranging the letters to discover that the name is an anagram of 'No More Secrets', and the company is in the business of cracking codes.
Except here's the rub: Seatec Astronomy is not an anagram of No More Secrets. It is an anagram of "Anatomy-o-Secrets" and "O, a so many a Secrets", but not "No More Secrets".
Am I remembering this movie incorrectly, or did the movie makers just not care enough to have a working anagram?
