Near the end, the case Beachum reviews regarding double jeopardy is People v. Bivens, 282 Cal. Rptr. 438, 231 Cal. App. 3d (Cal. Ct. App., 1991). Under Bivens, California can prosecute Crawford for murder, even though it arises out of the same transaction as a defendant's prior case.

Towards the end when Beachum calls on Crawford, Crawford looks in a security monitor. Under the monitor there is a security panel for an alarm system. When the shot changes, the panel is gone, then appears again.

By the expert's testimony in court we are informed that Ted Crawford's bullet pierced through the frontal cortex in the temporal lobe coming to rest upon the upper side of the brain against the skull. Yet when we see wife Jennifer's head hit the floor for a brief moment in a close-up, there is no injury visible at all. Furthermore in another scene Ted points to his left cheek bone when he describes where he shot his wife. Such an injury is very different from that described during the trial. The shot was fired at close range with a powerful .45, which makes it very unlikely that the bullet would come to rest within the skull.

When Willy is reading Dr Seuss to Jennifer in the hospital and the nurse walks in we see the back cover of the book. The spine of the book should be pointing towards Willy's left side but it's actually pointing to his right. Thus, he's holding the book upside down.

What does the title have to do with the movie?
The title comes from a scene in which Crawford tells Willy about his first experience candling eggs (holding an egg up to the light of a candle and looking for imperfections) on his grandfather's egg farm. 'He told me to put all the eggs that were cracked or flawed into a bucket for the bakery,' he explains. 'He came back an hour later, and there were 300 eggs in the bakery bucket...I had found a flaw in every single one of them...thin places in the shell and fine hairline cracks. You look closely, enough,' he goes on, 'and you find that everything has a weak spot where it can break sooner or later.' He then assures Willy that he has already found his weak spot, his crack, the hairline fracture of his character. 'You're a winner, Willy,' Crawford concludes.
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Fracture can be found here.
How did Crawford know Nunally would attend the scene?
Crawford knew that Nunally was LAPD's Hostage Negotiator, which is why he set up a supposed hostage situation. When Crawford is speaking on the payphone prior to shooting his wife, he asks if Nunally is working at the time. Although Nunally is not in at the moment, Crawford is informed that he will be on duty at 6 PM, providing Crawford with a time frame for the shooting. When Nunally arrives at the scene and phones Crawford, he identifies himself as the Hostage Negotiator, so Crawford's plan is set in motion.
