Did you know?
The idea of unusual heat in the museum rendering thermal cameras useless came from director John McTiernan's earlier movie Predator (1987). In that movie, McTiernan's actual thermal cameras began to fail when the jungle temperature broke 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Catherine Banning, whilst picking holes in the investigating detectives theory, says that "the thieves prepared a load, conservatively, 1,000 lbs of paintings and 800lbs of men that we know about in a chopper with a 600lbs useful load", suggesting that this could never happen.The chopper is then correctly described as a Sikorsky S-76. However, there are four men on the job in total (800lbs), plus the load which is stated to weigh the equivalent of five men (1,000lbs). Add the helicopter pilot and you have the equivalent weight therefore of 10 men. Yet the S76 is a 12 man helicopter so should easily cope with this much weight. Catherine's figure refers to the baggage compartment capacity. They'd simply put the pictures inside the aircraft with the passengers.

On the golf course, Crown bets on his ability to throw the ball by half-burying it into the sand. Yet on he next shot the ball is not buried, but just lying on the ground.

When Crown walks in front of the delivery truck, the shot from the cab clearly shows that a car is stopped 9 feet in front of the truck. So, why was the delivery truck traveling so fast to begin with? Then, in the long shot after the driver moves on, he accelerates at a high rate, as if there was no car stopped in front of him. If there is a traffic-jam, the car would not have traveled far at all during that time.

Where did they go on their island vacation?
Thomas' private jet flies him and Catherine off to a beautiful island where they spend 'two days and two nights'. The island is not identified in the movie, other than NOT being Manhattan. It was Martinique, a French island located in the east Caribbean. Martinique can be seen (off to the right) on this map. A press release detailing how Martinique was chosen for The Thomas Crown Affair can be read here.
