| The Movie that redefined a genre
Viewers are taken on a ride through three different stories that entertwine together around the world of Marcellus Wallace. Quentin Tarantino proves that he is the master of witty dialogue and a fast plot that doesn't allow the viewer a moment of boredom or rest. From the story of two hit-man on a job, to a fixed boxing match to a date between a hit-man and the wife of a mob boss. There was definitely a lot of care into the writing of the script, as everything no matter the order it is in, fits with the story. Many mysteries have been left such as what is inside of the briefcase and why Marcellus Wallace has a band-aid on the back of his neck, which may be connected. The movie redefined the action genre and reinvigorated the careers of both John Travolta and Bruce Willis. This movie is required viewing for any fan of film.

Quotes

Pumpkin: Forget it. Too risky. I'm through doing that shit.
Yolanda: You always say that. That same thing every time, "I'm through, never again, too dangerous".
Pumpkin: I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
Yolanda: But you forget about it in a day or two.
Pumpkin: Yeah, ...


Goofs

(at around 2h 20 mins) While Yolanda is pointing her gun at Jules, during the diner holdup scene at the end, saliva on the side of her chin appears, disappears, reappears and disappears between shots.


Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, the music changes as if it were on the radio just as the credit for "Music Supervisor" appears on the screen.


Alternate Versions

A Special Collector's Edition has been released on video in the Spring of 1996. This edition includes a supplementary 11-minute section that features director Quentin Tarantino introducing two never-before-seen scenes, not included in the original theatrical release. The two scenes are as follows:

  • Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace's first encounter in her apartment is longer. Before leaving to have dinner to the Jackrabbit Slim's, Mia interviews Vincent while shooting with a hand-held video camera. Mia asks Vincent if he's related to folk singer Suzanne Vega and then proceeds with a series of trivia-like questions on his personal preferences ("Brady Bunch or the Partridge Family?") and asks him if he's an "Elvis man or a Beatles man". This explains a later comment ("An Elvis man should love this") that Mia makes in the theatrical version.
  • The taxi ride and conversation between Butch and driver Esmarelda are longer and there's additional dialogue where Butch explains his feelings about being a boxer and killing his opponent Floyd.
