To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.

Car theft in Long Beach went down 47% when Randall "Memphis" Raines walked away from the life. He gets dragged back into it by assuming the job his brother Kip screwed up for stolen-car broker Raymond Calitri: steal 50 exotic cars and have them on a container ship by 8 AM Friday morning, and he got this news on a Monday. With Calitri threatening to kill him and Kip, and the police GRAB unit breathing down his neck, Memphis reassembles his old crew and attempts to pull off the logistically impossible. Written by

The scene in the movie where the whole crew has to get the detective (Delroy Lindo) to blow away drug evidence with a car's exhaust, is the one portion of the film that is virtually identical to the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974). Though it was completely extraneous with regards to the 1974 film's plot, this scene is not "completely extraneous" to the plot of the 2000 film. This scene is where the detective spots a list of police call signs on a table as he walks around the Cadillac that lets him know that Memphis will be stealing the cars that night. See more »
When Kip is stealing the Porsche at the beginning of the movie, he trows a brick into the glass doors. The stone shatters both doors. In the next shot, we see him walking in and the left door (right side of the screen) is unbroken. See more »

Don't touch nothing! You can't negotiate turns. You can't signal properly. You can't maintain speed. You can't parallel park. Hell, you can't drive, honey. Shit, I can't swim, I know I can't. So you know what I do? I stay my black ass out the pool!

Before the end credits begin the screen goes black. When this happens we hear Memphis' car stall and he says "Oh don't do this to me!" See more »
gone in 60 seconds is a very good action comedy film that made over $100 million but got blasted by most critics. I personally thought this was a great film. The story was believable and has probobly the greatest cast ever for this type of movie including 3 academy award winners nicolas cage, robert duvall and the very hot anjolina jolie. other than the lame stunt at the end this is a perfect blend of action comedy and drama. my score is **** (out of ****)
