Ocean's Eleven

Corrected entry: When the cops take Danny away he has blood on his collar of his tux. When he gets out of jail there is no blood.

Correction: As he was in there for four to six months, the prison wardens porbably had the decency to wash the tux for his leaving the prison.

Corrected entry: When the pinch is activated and all the power is cut off in Las Vegas, how does George Clooney and Matt Damon use their pulley system to go down the elevator if the pulley system is also equipped with electronics, because you can obviously see the red lights turn on when the pulley is attached to the wall (electromagnets, presumably). So the pulley system shouldn't work, just like all the electronic equipment.

Correction: EMP pulses disrupt electronics, but if the electromagnets weren't activated when the pulse was triggered, they could be switched on immediately afterwards and work perfectly.

Corrected entry: When George Clooney and Matt Damon are going down the elevator shaft, the laserbeams are turned off for a short amount of time. Both of their ropes are short and they have to cut them. Right when they drop from the ropes the laserbeams are turned back on. Wouldn't the ropes left dangling set off the alarms?

Correction: the pulley systems they use to descend down the elevator shaft pull the remaining ropes back up after Clooney and Damon cut themselves free.

More quotes from Ocean's Eleven

Trivia: Rusty Ryan is eating in nearly every scene he is in - on the DVD, there is a commentary by Brad Pitt (Rusty), where he says that during filming, he realized that since his character is so busy, he would have to eat whenever he got a chance, so he and the director decided to have him eating in every scene.
