In the 1965 thriller "Blindfold", Rock Hudson's kidnappers drive him past a lake with a gaggle of geese nearby. He later thinks this was the sound of the guests at a cocktail party - until he retraces his route and discovers the actual source of the sounds. This idea was borrowed by the producers of "Sneakers" in 1992 when Robert Redford is kidnapped, blindfolded, and also thinks the sound of the geese he passed where people at a cocktail party.

One of my favorites. Without repeating any of the other observations that have been made already, I'd just like to point out the movie's penchant for mixing high-tech gloss and low-tech grunge. Bishop's office is filled with computer equipment, but it looks like a frat house. The glass-enclosed conference room sticks out like a sore thumb in the middle of the exposed brick and party favors hanging from the ceiling. The van that looks like it needs a jump every morning is filled with a mix of electronic surveillance equipment, candy wrappers and Playboy magazines in braille. Bishop's car looks like it was once a classic, but now needs a paint job. And, most obvious of all, when Bishop is breaking into Cosmo's office from the ceiling air vent, he lowers a piece of sensing equipment through the vent using, of all things, a Ronco Pocket Fisherman. The incongruous nature of the sets and props gives the film an extra layer of charm.
Also, I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but does Cosmo seem to be a latent homosexual? Among other hints, at the end, he begs with Bishop to stay with him, and seems near tears.
