Trivia

The primary influence for the film's screenplay came from Andrew Kevin Walker's time spent in New York City while trying to make it as a screenwriter. "I didn't like my time in New York, but it's true, that if I hadn't lived there, I probably wouldn't have written ... ...


Quotes

Detective Taylor: Neighbors heard them screaming at each other, like for two hours, and it was nothing new. Then they heard the gun go off, both barrels. Crime of passion.
William Somerset: Yeah, just look at all the passion on that wall.


Goofs

When the detectives find the fingerprints that say "Help me" behind the painting and submit them to be found in the database, the technician says that it can take up to three days to make a match. Later they talk about how they found Sloth in the apartment exactly a year "to the day" after the first photo of him was taken. If the killer wanted them to find Sloth on a particular day, how could he have known how long it would take the police to find a fingerprint match?


Crazy Credits

SPOILER: Kevin Spacey's name is not included in the opening titles to keep the John Doe intrigue going. To compensate, he is listed twice in the closing credits: once before the credits start rolling and once in the rolling credits in order of appearance.


Alternate Versions

Depending on the version, the line "Let's finish it" is spoken either by Somerset or Mills.
