Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Towards the end of the film, when Rusty and Danny are in the airport, they each mock each other. Rusty tells Danny to try and keep the weight off in between jobs next time. This is a reference to George Clooney, who put on extra weight for his role in Syriana and in turn injured his back doing some stunts. Danny tells Rusty, "Settle down and have a couple of kids," which is a reference to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's relationship and children.
  • When Danny and Rusty are reminiscing about meeting Reuben, they are wandering in front of the Bellagio. The tune that is playing is {Clair de Lune}. This is the same tune that played at the end of Ocean's Eleven when all the characters are standing in front of the Bellagio watching the fountains.
  • Linus's fake nose ploy is "The Brody", a reference to actor Adrien Brody.
  • Release prints were delivered to theaters with the fake title License to Steal.
  • Steven Soderbergh filmed all of Al Pacino's scenes in three weeks.
  • In The Godfather: Part II, Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino) is at a meeting in Havana, Cuba when Cuban Pres. Fulgencio Batista (played by [?] Tito Alba) receives a solid gold telephone. In Ocean's Thirteen, Willie Bank (also played by Al Pacino) receives a solid gold cellphone obtained by Abigail Sponder from the manufacturer.
  • When Reuben wakes up and speaks to Danny and Rusty, he says "I hear cars coming and going, I hear Linus crying. I think you should tell me what everyone seems to know." This is a variation on lines spoken by Don Corleone to Tom Hagen in The Godfather. In that film, "what everyone seems to know" about was the death of Sonny Corleone, played by James Caan, whose son, Scott Caan appears in this film. Andy Garcia appeared in The Godfather: Part III as the son of Sonny Corleone.
  • The line "You shook Sinatra's hand" mentioned several times in the movie is a reference to Frank Sinatra who played Danny Ocean in the original Ocean's Eleven.
  • While Danny, Reuben and Linus watch Rusty claiming to be a seismologist warning Willy Bank of potential seismic activity, Linus says to Reuben, "He's doing an Irwin Allen". [?] Irwin Allen was a television and film producer nicknamed "the master of disaster" for his work in the disaster film genre.
  • The characters make several references to a "Susan B. Anthony" in their heist. This is a reference to the Susan B. Anthony dollar manufactured by the US mint in 1979. It was similar in appearance and size to a regular quarter and many people dropped it into a slot machine without realizing what it was worth. This method was used twice in the film, though the people are using an ordinary coin they don't realize that it will be worth millions in the slot: first by the woman in The Bank who wins the jackpot and later by the VUP at the slot machine in the airport.
