| really a great movie!
I watched this movie for the first time without knowing what the movie was about. I remember hearing about how cool this movie was and I saw people wearing shirts and listening to the soundtrack, but I had never seen it. So when it first came out on DVD, I bought it without ever watching it before. In Tarantino I trust. For good reason. This is a classic movie, a throwback. A movie about a jewel heist gone wrong and the consequences of working with strangers. This flick has a great cast, great script, and flawless direction. Taratino films are great because they stress the story more than anything else. In all of his movies, the script is strong enough to carry the movie. Now add good over the top acting and you have a hit. The realism of this movie is what grabs you. You really feel like you are in that abandoned warehouse. If felt privileged to have bought such a movie without watching it first. An instant classic. I love this movie!

Trivia

In an interview with Empire Magazine, career criminal Edward Bunker (Mr. Blue) stated that the film was unrealistic. He would never have considered committing a robbery with five people he didn't know (and therefore could not trust). He also commented that it would be extremely foolhardy for the distinctively dressed gang to publicly have breakfast together beforehand. When news of the robbery broke, witnesses would be certain to remember them.


Quotes

Mr. Brown: Let me tell you what 'Like a Virgin' is about. It's all about a girl who digs a guy with a big dick. The entire song. It's a metaphor for big dicks.
Mr. Blonde: No, no. It's about a girl who is very vulnerable. She's been fucked over a few times. Then she meets...


Goofs

When Mr. White and Mr. Pink are talking about Mr. Blonde going "psycho" at the heist, Mr. White says he almost took Mr. Blonde out himself. When the two later confront Mr. Blonde about his antics, Mr. White says to Mr. Pink, "You said yourself you thought about taking him out."


Crazy Credits

The opening credits leave out Writing and Directing credits. They are then shown first during the end credits.


Alternate Versions

Reportedly, in the Italian version the main titles sequence where the guys walk down the street outside the diner is not shown in slow motion.
