Trivia / Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000)

  • Actor Allusion: When Sphinx (Vinnie Jones) saves Memphis from being beaten up, he grabs one of his attackers by the groin while he's standing behind him, mimicking this famous picture.
  • Awesome, Dear Boy: Angelina Jolie agreed to be in this movie because she loves cars. At the time, she drove a Ford truck.
  • Completely Different Title: In some Greek theaters, the title was translated to "Come in 60 Seconds".
  • Method Acting: To stay in character, Delroy Lindo wore his gun and police gear even when it wasn't needed in the shot.
  • No Stunt Double: Nicolas Cage did most of his own stunt driving for the film. He attended the Bondurant Driving School in Phoenix, Arizona, Willow Springs (another car driving school), and the Bobby Ore Stunt Driving School in preparation for the film. He liked the race car driving school so much that he continued to pursue it as a hobby after shooting was completed.
  • Old Shame: Christopher Eccleston described this as a "terrible film in which I give a terrible performance", adding that, before Doctor Who, people who recognised him mostly shouted "'You were in Gone in 60 Seconds, mate! You were shit!' And I have to laugh at that, because I was!""
  • Uncredited Role: Jonathan Hensleigh and J. J. Abrams did an uncredited re-write.
