For the original 1969 film, see here.

The 2003 remake of The Italian Job was directed by F. Gary Gray and stars Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Edward Norton, Seth Green, Jason Statham, Mos Def, and Donald Sutherland. It was described by Gray as "an homage to the original". For this reason, fans of the original movie often dismiss it as Fanon Discontinuity. Less stuffy types, however, can take it as a quality action flick in its own right, with simple but effective trope execution, and excellent action sequences.


Tropes used in The Italian Job (2003 film) include:

 Left Ear: I don't do dogs. I had a real bad experience, man.

Charlie: What happened?

Left Ear: I had a bad experience. Dammit, I'm deaf.

 Steve: What the FUCK happened to my truck?!

  • Something Only They Would Say: The villain realizes that he's on a date with Bridger's daughter when she uses her father's trademark phrase, "I trust everyone; I just don't trust the devil inside them."
  • Stock Subtitle: In the UK, the film was titled "The Italian Job: L.A. Heist" to differentiate from the original film, and to help stem complaints that most of the film takes place in Los Angeles. That being said, if they were going to add the "L.A. Heist" subtitle anyway, why didn't they just call it that in the first place?
  • Take Five: Skinny Pete tells his girl, "Go relax, babe," when he wants to have a private meeting with someone.
  • Turn in Your Badge: Parodied. Handsome Rob gets stuck in traffic behind an actor practicing his lines for a cop movie.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Either they steal the gold and get away, or Steve tracks them down and gets taken by the Ukrainians.
  • You Fail Physics Forever: During the planning stages, the crew decides on using MINI Coopers because they fit in the hallways of Steve's house. The cars would fit, but they certainly wouldn't be able to turn the 90 degree corners.
