bed bugs go Hollywood?

in bed bugs, tipping point

Not to give the plot away (and I have not seen the film yet) but this review implies that bed bugs feature in the new Ocean’s Thirteen movie.

Shhhh! If you’ve seen it, don’t spill the beans!

Just for the record, so lame!

(No such thing as bad press, however, for our least favorite ectoparasite.)

I finally saw this movie.

The article cited above from the Times-Picayune said,

It’s a tricky plan, and not just because it requires rigging every game in the house — it also requires convincing a roomful of high rollers to quit while they’re ahead. And before the movie is over, the Ocean con will require a roomful of bedbugs, a couple of clever disguises, a powerful aphrodisiac and several explosions.

But I don’t think they were bed bugs.

****************************** spoiler alert ****************************

A character tips something out of a small vial (and I am ready for it to be bed bugs).

But when another character later inspects the bed with what appears to be a black light / UV goggles, we see an enormous number of tiny insects crawling over the bed. They do not appear to be shaped like bed bugs, though it is hard to see on my small TV screen. They do look very small and all the same size.

Perhaps someone knows what they were?
