Fridge: Ocean's Eleven

Fridge Brilliance
  • The Mormon jokes from the Malloy twins are remarkably accurate to true-life, making one suspect that there must have been some Mormons involved in the making of these films. In particular, when Turk is speaking with Saul at the beginning of Eleven, he tells Saul that he should "check out Provo. You could do very well for yourself there." This seems like simply making uncomfortable small talk, until you realize what Saul does to make his living—he's an expert con man! Utah is considered by many to be the testing ground for new scams because there are so many well-meaning people to take advantage of, so when Turk was telling Saul to go to Provo, he was being surprisingly astute.
