* TheMissusAndTheEx: Played with when Karen goes to interview Foley's ex-wife Adele for clues, as Karen technically isn't in a relationship with Foley (yet). The novel has it that Adele figures out right away that Foley flirted with Karen while locked up in that car trunk, and starts giving Karen tips about Foley's social tics rather than the next heist he's got planned.

* RatedMForManly: Has a cast line-up - not just the guys like Clooney, Rhames, Farina, GUZMAN! and Cheadle but also the ladies like Lopez and Nancy Allen - that makes Rated M movies on a regular basis, involves a heist, and relies on a Elmore Leonard novel to cool dialogue and cooler anti-heroes.
