| 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

Captain Koonz tells young Butch that the gold watch was bought by Erine Coolodge at a shop in Knoxville on the day he set sail for Europe. If a military man was about to get on a boat then he would not be in a city that is hundreds of miles from the ocean on the same day.


Crazy Credits

The coffee shop manager in the robbery scene at the end is credited as "Coffee Shop" because he is cut off as he speaks: "I am not a hero, I'm just a coffee shop--"


Alternate Versions

In the United Arab Emirates, a completely different version of the film was released theatrically. The film was re-edited so that each story was told without intercutting. The Vincent Vega/Jules Winnfield story and the Bonnie Situation were first, then the story concerning Vincent Vega and Marcellus Wallace's wife was told, and finally the Gold Watch story was told. The film ended with Butch and Fabian riding off on the chopper.
