In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet.
In the asylum, when Bruce Willis is sitting at the little table talking to Jeffrey, he is writing with his left hand. Bruce is pretty strict about being a lefty with his directors, even golfing left-handed in Armageddon.
Jose - psst! Jose, what's going on?
Jose: Bad news, man
James Cole: Volunteers?
Jose: Yeah. And they said your name.
Jose: Hey, maybe they'll give you a pardon, man.
James Cole: Yeah, that's why none of the volunteers come back. They all get a pardon.
The spider James Cole eats is a Golden Orb Weaver or Banana Spider (Nephila Clavipes). However, that spider inhabits southern regions of the US (mainly Florida), and would never be found in cities in a northern climate like Boston.
The symbol of the 12 Monkeys provides the backdrop for the opening and closing credits.
