Ocean's Eleven

Corrected entry: An electromagnetic pulse fries any electrical circuits that are in the blast radius, which means that electricity would not come back on at all; the bomb would not just shut it off then back on.

Correction: The pulse was only supposed to disrupt the electricity for a time, which it did. Now how they "scientifically" effected this reaction is the real mystery.

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.

Correction: It's not a mistake. It's a flashback, it is how he is remembering it in his own head.

Corrected entry: One of the reasons the gang decides to rob the casinos on a fight night is because, Danny says, the vault has to hold enough money to cover every chip played on the floor. That's not actually true anymore. With ATM's and electronic transfers, the law no longer stands.

Correction: The law still stands. Casinos must have enough money to cover all chips (for table games) or silver tokens (for slot machines) being used in the casino. They are required to pay all winnings in cash. ATM's are for customers only.

Deliberate mistake: Walsh, the casino manager, is with Saul Bloom, watching the briefcase being put into the vault. However, at the exact same time, Walsh is seen escorting Frank Catton from the building. (01:13:15)

Trivia: Don Cheadle's billing/crediting in the movie was of significant dispute. Cheadle wanted to be mentioned above the title at the end of the movie - "pre title credits" - as a featured actor, along with Clooney, Pitt, and Damon, as opposed to being mentioned after the credits with the remaining cast members. His ask was refused by the director, and in response to that refusal, Cheadle said that he didn't want to be mentioned anywhere in the credits if he couldn't be granted pre-title credits. Cheadle's ask was granted in both Oceans 12 and Oceans 13, and he is mentioned before the title at the end of each movie.
