Trivia: When Mark Wahlberg drove his own Mini nothing happened, but when he was sitting next to Charlize Theron, he got very ill and had to get out of the car.

Trivia: In the scene where Charlie and co are watching Steve through his window and Lyle says "What does a man worth $35 million do on an evening... he comes home and watches his big ass TV," on the TV Steve is watching we can see Michael Caine, star of the original "Italian Job".

Character mistake: When Charlie is calling out the brick count to Napster from the subway, he describes it as being "13 across, 4 high, 4 deep". The bricks appear to be 2 deep in the safe (13x4x2), so he could just be lumping two shelves together, which works (13x4x4 = 13x4x2x2). The problem is that when the camera pans down there are 3 shelves in the safe. This means that there are more than the 208 bricks that Napster announces. (01:33:40)
