Ocean's Twelve

Factual error: The scene where Nightfox steals the Faberge Egg is all wrong. A laser security system must have a photoelectric receptor at the other side to detect if somebody pass between the two devices. As shown in the film, the laser beams points everywhere, so the system can't work and somebody could cross a beam without starting the alarm. Even if it was some weird system based on measuring distance it wouldn't work - if the laser hits the floor at an angle it won't bounce back to the source, it will reflect towards the ceiling.

New this month Suggested correction: This is incorrect because there are multiple types of photoelectric sensing configurations. You can read more about the different types at https://www.ia.omron.com/support/guide/43/introduction.html. Photoelectric sensors can be used in a diffuse-reflective setting, where some of the light returns to the source-but it generally only works well in close proximity settings. Even if there weren't a receptor, there could just be a reflector to focus returning light. Take it from an electrical engineer who works with these systems.

Factual error: In the movie the poles which houses are built on are situated in the water; one could swim between the poles. That's totally impossible: the poles are drilled in very wet sand (to be compared to a swamp) and you can't reach them from the canals in any way.

Plot hole: How did Benedict have time to visit all of Ocean's 11 without them informing each other? (That is, only Danny should have been surprised to see Benedict.)He had to travel to Connecticut, Utah, Miami, London, New Jersey, Chicago, New York, Louisiana, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. As soon as Danny knew, he was on the phone (presumably calling the others).

Trivia: The scene shot in Amsterdam Central Station was actually shot at the Haarlem train station. Dutch Railway officials didn't allow the interference of trains schedules on such a crowded station, since they're fined by the Dutch government for every delay. Haarlem is much quieter a station and just as beautiful a location. Also the Europol headquarters are in fact the Hague's City Hall.

More quotes from Ocean's Twelve


Chosen answer: It is set up in the previous scenes when the Ocean's crew listens to the tape finding out the NightFox hired Matsui to hire Danny Ocean. Matsui, being friends with Danny Ocean probably had no idea it was a set up. Most likely, Lahiri, putting most of what happened together in the aftermath of the robbery of the stock certificate in the previous scenes, told Matsui that he set up the Ocean's crew unknowingly. This seems the likely connection to the scene.

Question: When Bruce Willis, Julia Roberts and what's left of the gang go to the museum, several people tell Willis how much they liked him in "that one movie". Then they add something like "I knew it when she didn't speak to you in the restaurant". Are they referring to an actual movie?

Chosen answer: The Sixth Sense. They mean that they figured out the true nature of his character when his wife doesn't directly acknowledge his presence in a restaurant.

Question: I'm really bad at remembering faces - was just wondering if the guy who Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon meet, and eat with - and play the weird phrases game, is also Le Marque - so technically, did CZJ met her father unofficially, (before Pitt introduces him) when she was interrogating him?

Chosen answer: Le Marque and Matsui (the weird phrase guy) are played by Albert Finney and Robbie Coltrane, respectively (so no, she never met him before).
