Does Matt Damon play Vacarro, Sonny?
Yes. Which brings me to why i started this thread. i gave it 24 hours to see if anyone else brought it up.
In the first five minutes of the movie they are trying to convey to the viewer that Sonny Vaccaro knows all about basketball players from the high school level all the way to the NBA.
So in the scene they make it clear that it is 1984 and he is betting at the Dunes Sports book in Vegas. He bets 5 player props (wins them all of course) and the Lakers in the third quarter. One big problem with that is Player Props didn't exist in 1984 and you also could not bet third quarters in the NBA.
Yes, i know it is the way these kind of movies are made but it still drives me crazy to see stuff like this.
