Corrected entry: In the scene where the first whale is leaving the Bank and Willie is pleading for him to stay, the whale says, "I'm outta here" as the trunk opens and his luggage goes into it. The scene view changes slightly as Willie turns and the car is suddenly gone. Unlikely, as the trunk was just opening and the valet was loading it. Willie is still reacting to the scene, so it is not a matter of shortening the scene for time saving.
Corrected entry: Only two people had access to the diamond viewing room, Bank and Sponder, but the FBI had no problem getting in.
Corrected entry: Wouldn't Bank have noticed that the motorcyclist who burst into his office (Basher) was obviously not the same ethnicity as the motorcyclist he met initially? There's a scene toward the middle of the movie where Bank is telling the real motorcyclist (a white guy) that he needs to perform the jump "at midnight", not "roundabout midnight", so we know Bank did in fact meet and talk to him. Sure, Bank meets a lot of people every day, but I'm sure he'd remember that the motorcyclist he hired to perform at the grand opening gala is white, not black - especially since he seemed to know quite a bit about the sport in his encounter with Basher when he rattled off a list of several well-known motorcyclists.
Corrected entry: The replaced shuffling machines were rigged, but they had no way to trigger them at the precise time the greco went down.
Corrected entry: It's hard to believe that some of the rigged machines made it all the way to McCarran Airport, especially since that location had nothing to do with the overall plot. When Rusty sits down at the machine next to the AAA 5 Diamond Award critic, he puts a coin in using the same sequence as the one that triggered the machines in Bank's casino. It was obviously intended to show the audience that Rusty knew the machine was rigged, especially since he told the critic that the machine had been "paying out".
Corrected entry: When Rusty triggers the first slot machine he is given instructions over the phone. The voice is obviously Livingston. Livingston, however, has been previously arrested and therefore unable to make such a call.
Corrected entry: Danny and Rusty walk down the strip and eventually stop in front of the Bellagio as they talk about Rueben and what he means to them. For the entire scene, you don't see one other person walking on the strip besides the two of them. I've gone to Las Vegas enough to know that no matter what time of day or night it is, there are ALWAYS people walking around the Las Vegas strip, particularly in a busy area like the Bellagio.
Corrected entry: SPOILER ALERT: The NGC official turns out to be Linus' father. Why, then, does the plan involve his arrest of Livingston Dell and require a last-minute, frenzied attempt to stop Bank from checking Dell's fingerprints and finding out his known associates? This chain of events is superfluous to the plot and only creates problems, so why is it there, other than to facilitate Basher's impersonation of the motorcyclist?
Corrected entry: Danny and Rusty mention the Flamingo, the Sands, and the Desert Inn which were three of the five casinos robbed in the 1960 version of "Ocean's 11." The other two aren't mentioned because they still exist and the characters were only mentioning how the strip had changed.
