| Unbelievable.
Pulp Fiction may be the single best film ever made, and quite appropriately it is by one of the most creative directors of all time, Quentin Tarantino. This movie is amazing from the beginning definition of pulp to the end credits and boasts one of the best casts ever assembled with the likes of Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Christopher Walken. The dialog is surprisingly humorous for this type of film, and I think that's what has made it so successful. Wrongfully denied the many Oscars it was nominated for, Pulp Fiction is by far the best film of the 90s and no Tarantino film has surpassed the quality of this movie (although Kill Bill came close). As far as I'm concerned this is the top film of all-time and definitely deserves a watch if you haven't seen it.

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, well ...


Goofs

When Vincent is asking Mia about Marcellus throwing Tony Rocky Horror out of the window, Mia says "You say that Tony Rocky Horror was thrown out of a four story window for giving me a foot massage?" Vincent never said it was a four story window.

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.
