The march that's used as a theme for the FBI is from Sergei Prokofiev's 1919 opera "The Love for Three Oranges". It had previously been used as the theme of the radio show "The FBI in Peace and War", which aired on CBS from 1944 to 1958. See more »
When Tony is visiting Brink's headquarters, he is shown in a medium length shot standing next to a chute. Bags of money start coming down the chute and land on a table at its base but one of the bags lands on the floor. Next it cuts to a long shot but now all the money bags are on the table. See more »
As far as HEIST movies go, this one is pretty weak. Continuity is pretty lousy, there isn't enough character continuity to really feel like you understand any of the characters. Peter Falk is great, and he is one of the reasons its worth watching. Falk has some great lines, like "he'll be right back, he goin' buy to some saugages" or something like that... there are a few nice scenes, although they are entirely due to the efforts of the actors. Direction, script, and editing is pretty lousy.
