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.
  • The sequence in Twelve showing Toulour breaking into the museum can seem out of place, (relatively) unrealistic, or just plain ridiculous to most viewers, specially when he uses his Capoeira skills to bypass a field of moving lasers. However, one must remember that this scene is within a flashback being told by Toulour himself. It's very possible that he's embellishing or outright lying to make himself look better, or at the very least hide his real methods. Especially considering that when we do see him work in Thirteen his actual methods turn out to be rather silly.
