Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
Director Barry Levinson and co-Writer Barry Morrow have the same first names. (You don't say!)
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...
When the Lamborghinis are being unloaded from the ship the cars have the normal 8.5 x 15 inch front and 12 x 15 inch rear wheels already installed rather than the plain, narrow wheels the factory installs when shipping the cars overseas.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
Most airline versions of the film completely cut out the discussion of crash statistics. The reference to Qantas being the only international airline to have a perfect service record was deleted from the in-flight version of the movie by all international airlines except for Qantas.
