Donnie Brasco

Trivia: Throughout the entire movie, Donnie Brasco is seen wearing a wire device. In the actual book, Agent Pistone was said to only wear a wire maybe a few times in the 6 years he was undercover.

Trivia: Joe Pistone maintained his cover so convincingly in real life, the Bonanno Family seriously considered "making" him before it was revealed he was an FBI agent.

Trivia: The scene in which Joe Pistone bets his children that they can't make it through breakfast without saying three words (and his daughter replies "You lose") is a reference to a similar bet made to, and the exact same reply from, president Calvin Coolidge.
