* CelebrityParadox / YourCostumeNeedsWork: Tess, played by Julia Roberts, impersonates Julia Roberts--badly--to pull off the heist in ''Twelve''.

* CelebrityParadox / YourCostumeNeedsWork: Tess, YourCostumeNeedsWork:
**Tess,
played by Julia Roberts, impersonates Julia Roberts--badly--to pull off the heist in ''Twelve''.''Twelve''. And complains that it's "too personal" to impersonate someone else who's out there somewhere. And then she has to interact with several other celebrities like Bruce Willis who know Julia Roberts. The fact that Danny Ocean, played by Creator/GeorgeClooney, couldn't do the same implies that this is a case of OneShotRevisionism.
**In ''Eleven'', in one of the earliest scenes, Danny and Rusty walk out of the club where they've been teaching celebrities to play poker. It's very surreal to see Topher Grace and Joshua Jackson get mobbed by squealing fans, while Creator/GeorgeClooney and Creator/BradPitt stroll by unnoticed.

* HollywoodLaw: Especially in the first film, there is a fictitious Nevada Gaming Commission law[[note]]That is, the law is fictitious, not the Commission[[/note]] stipulating that casinos in the state are required to hold a minimum amount of cash on the premises, in the event that a high-roller strikes the grand jackpot. Not surprisingly, the title characters [[TheCaper hatch a plan]] to exploit this.

Not surprisingly, the title characters [[TheCaper hatch a plan]] to exploit this. No such law is in place, because casinos would never dole out that much physical cash at once. They would start making payment negotiations for checks or electronic transfers after taxes are deducted, if for no other reason than the fact that the hypothetical high-roller would need a forklift truck to get the money out the door: $160 million in C-notes would weigh about 1.5 tons.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodDensity: At no point in the movie does anyone bring up or address the fact that $160 million would weigh roughly a ton and a half if it's all in C-notes, and more if it includes a mixture of smaller bills. This is far more than eleven men could possibly carry in one trip unless they're all bodybuilders.

* SequenceDeception: In ''Ocean's Twelve'', there's a segment where we see Ocean's team and a rival thief both trying to steal a MacGuffin, but [[spoiler:find out that the rival got there much earlier and the Macguffin is gone]].
