Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
Hans Zimmer's first score for a Hollywood production.
Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?
Lenny: Uh, yes sir, they're finally, uh, clearing EPA; uh, just one or two more days.
Charlie: Three times...
The scene when Ray gets out of the car on the interstate the posted interstate sign says West 275 (odd number). This is incorrect. The Interstate System is based on a grid, with east-west routes bearing even numbers and north-south routes bearing odd numbers. Therefore the sign should've had an even number going west. However, triple-digit interstates such as I-275 are auxiliary freeways from its parent highway (in this case Interstate 75) and can travel and be signed in any one of the main cardinal directions. In the case of I-275, it is a ring freeway around Cincinnati, so at some points in would be going in, and signed, east-west.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
