The Thomas Crown Affair

The missing painting was actually the one Thomas Crown donated as a temporary replacement, just covered with a water-based paint. The sprinklers go off at the end, revealing the real painting underneath the paint. Thomas Crown gets away with it and he runs away with Catherine Banning.

Plot hole: When Renee Russo was reviewing the tape showing the room with the painting to see who stole the painting, and the tape was blank because the heat generated from the suitcase hidden under the bench, why didn't she just back up the tape completely to see who put the suitcase there in the first place?

Trivia: Not strictly a mistake, but have you ever seen anything like the product placement when Rene Russo storms into an office and downs a can of Pepsi One (with the label cunning facing the camera)? She does all but turn to camera, hold it up, and say "aaah - there's nothing like an ice-cold can of Pepsi". I actually laughed when I saw it.

Question: Can anyone tell me what Katherine is drinking in the morning - the greenish blue drink - about which she says "Don't ask what it is"? I know its never answered in the movie, but can anyone make an educated guess?

Answer: It's a health drink that is primarily made of seaweed and sea-kelp. It's actually not that bad tasting.
