In the midst of veteran con man Nicky's latest scheme, a woman from his past - now an accomplished femme fatale - shows up and throws his plans for a loop.
After Ryan Gosling dropped out, the role was offered to Brad Pitt, but he declined, and Ben Affleck, who dropped out citing "scheduling conflicts."
Maybe you should slow down a little.
Nicky: No, no, no. I just wanna talk to the man. This is a free country. Buenos Aires is a free country, right?
Pretty Woman: No, Buenos Aires is a city.
During his explanation of the scam that took place during the Super Bowl game, Nicky comments that because the song "Sympathy for the Devil" has 124 "woo woos" and the Mandarin word for five is "wu" that the number 5 was being subconsciously planted in their mark Liyuan's head to help him pick the number 55, however the song doesn't start playing until after Liyuan picks a player, it only starts playing later when Jess looks through the binoculars and tries to pick the same player...so that would have done nothing to influence Liyuan's picking 55.
That is not true. When Jess (Margot Robbie) is looking through the binoculars to guess the number, the song "Sympathy for the Devil" is not heard on location, but is merely playing as part of the movie's soundtrack (so-called "non-diegetic sound"), which means the movie characters cannot hear it anyway. But that's not the only time the song is played; the song is also heard playing in the skybox (as so-called "diegetic sound") during the previous bet, when Nicky (Will Smith) puts the money from his bag onto the table and says "All of it, 1.1 million. High card takes it all." So by the time that Liyuan Tse (BD Wong) picks up the binoculars to choose a player during the final bet, he has already been subjected to 124 "woo-woos" to subconsciously influence his choice.
