Corrected entry: Shortly after the vault has been successfully robbed, George Clooney is beaten-up by Bruiser in a small room with two guards outside. Andy Garcia enters and George Clooney's face is badly bloodied and bruised. A few moments later they are talking to each other in the corridor outside and George's face has made a near total recovery. A few moments later still, George Clooney meets up with Julia Roberts at the entrance to the casino and his face has completed its miraculous healing. (01:41:58)
Corrected entry: When Yen is in the vault he uses the fake jewels (that Basher made) with another device to blow the door.Why doesn't he just bring the jewel device in the trolley with him like the other (silver) device? It would have much less risk because they knew that Benedict would check the case and possibly the jewels too.
Corrected entry: After discovering the thieves in his vault, Terry Bennedict (Garcia) turns to Mr. Walsh and whispers "Make the call" [to the police.] Near the end of the movie, when a flashback is shown of the same scene, Bennedict says "Make the call" in a much louder voice and Mr. Walsh brings the phone to his ear much more quickly than before.
Corrected entry: When Benedict finds out that Frank Catten has a criminal record, he has him escorted out of the hotel and tells him never to step foot in any of my casino's again. Later, Frank was able to walk into the Bellagio and into the hotel room. As ruthless and devious Benedict is, wouldn't it make sense to inform security about him to make sure he does not enter the casino?
Corrected entry: When George Clooney and Matt Damon first meet, George slides a ticket along the table, which Matt Damon subtly takes, leaving Mr. Clooney quite impressed. But before Matt takes it, George Clooney looks towards the bar, waves his hand, and is then amazed when the ticket's gone. Matt Damon had about 3 seconds to take it - anyone could grab it in that time.Jon Sandys
Corrected entry: If the thieves are surprised/concerned when the security guard places the briefcase on top of the cart where their accomplice is hiding, why does the recording they made have the brief case in exactly the same place?
Corrected entry: During the "pinch" Cloony and Damon crack chemical light sticks to illuminate the elevator shaft. When this is done, the sticks are bent and only one side of the sticks are illuminated. However, in the next shot of the sticks hitting the ground, the sticks are straight and fully illuminated.Adam Feller
Corrected entry: When the two brothers get out of the elevator, we see the clothes on the elevator floor. Wouldn't the cameras see them change in the elevator?
Corrected entry: In both the scenes where the robbers and the SWAT team absail down the elevator shaft, there is no elevator, as this would obviously prevent them from reaching the vault in the first place.
Corrected entry: Basher sets off a pinch to short circuit the entire Las Vegas Strip. This is a destination many thousands of seniors come to each year. Wouldn't it stand to reason that some of these senior citizens would have pacemakers that would falter in the wake of the pinch?
Corrected entry: In the scene when Matt Damon is at the bar in Chicago talking to George Clooney, Matt Damon takes off his eye glasses and puts them down on the table. The next shot George Clooney is asking for another drink with the plane ticket on the table. When you see the table, Matt Damon's glasses are not there, but when Matt Damon is holding the plane ticket in his hand the glasses are on the table.
Corrected entry: On the tape of the stage robbery, we clearly see three men in the vault, Yen, Linus and Danny. But up until Danny was "burned" there were only going to be two people in the vault - Yen and Danny. Linus was a last minute replacement for Danny (albeit pretend, we later find out). Regardless, there were only ever meant to be two people in the vault, as far as Linus knew, at least - he would have been a bit suspicious while filming the fake robbery with three people there.
Corrected entry: To get into the vault, they need the amazing Yen to pull fancy acrobatics because of the eleborate alarm system, including lasers covering the floor. For some reason, exploding the doors does not set off the alarm. If they could kill the alarm, why didn't Yen just walk across the room?
