Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when the two main charaters were in the hotel standing in front of a mirror, he had glasses on - but in the mirror, he did not.
Corrected entry: During the opening credits when Ben is riding his bike, his bag switches shoulders.
Corrected entry: This film is based on a true story. One problem though: the kids from MIT were mostly Asian American students, not all white kids.
Corrected entry: When introduced to the team, Prof Rosa asks Ben if he's ever been to this classroom and Ben says he took organic chemistry in it during frehman year. When asked by the Prof how he did, he says he got an 'A'. At MIT, in the 90s, freshmen only got Pass or No Record for courses. They were not graded until sophomore year. (00:18:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene at the beginning of the film where Ben, his mother, Josh, and Cam are celebrating his 21st birthday in the bar with the cake, Ben's mother hands Josh (sitting on Ben's right) a slice of cake and he says "Thanks." In one of the immediately following shots, Ben's mother is yet again giving Josh another piece of cake. Surely he can't have eaten it all in 3 seconds.
Corrected entry: It is interesting to note that the head of security at the casino is named "Terry." In the Ocean's 11, 12, and 13 movies, we've come be be quite familiar with the name Terry Benedict, also the common "bad guy." Somehow it seems difficult to see this as a coincidence.
Corrected entry: If you watch the trailer, the scene where Kevin looks at the test score of the main character, it shows a 100% - but in the movie the paper showed a 97%.
Corrected entry: MIT's grading scale is on a 5.0 system. Ben's GPA of 4.0 would be straight B's, yet he received an A in his freshman year chemistry class.
Corrected entry: The Wynn was not a hotel in Las Vegas during the timeframe of this movie. Also, the security screening was based on today's procedures, rather than when the Vegas casino scenarios occurred.
Corrected entry: (slight spoiler) Also notable in the Ocean's franchise, they use flashbacks to explain the plot. And in one scene, they use the exact same song that was used in the Ocean's score.
