Trivia

Stephen Baldwin was wary about joining the production, as he was tired of taking part in independent films that turned out to be merely exploitative.

Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.


Goofs

The robbery of New York's Finest Taxi service is a 5-man job, done with four vans, two of which have passengers not in the driver's seat. The van in front is driven by Keaton with Verbal holding the gun when the back door opens. The van behind rear-ends the car and gunmen hold guns on the cops from the driver's side of the van on the right and the passenger side of the van on the left. Who is driving the van on the left? Three guys (Fenster, McManus, Hockney) are doing four jobs (driver rear, driver left, passenger left, driver right). It's possible Hockney (in the left van) threw it into park and quickly slid over to the passenger window. But this is Verbal's version of the story, not necessarily what actually happened. It is quite possibly his mistake, not spotted by Kujan, rather than a mistake by the filmmakers.


Crazy Credits

The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."


Alternate Versions

When Redfoot hits McMannus with his cigarette, there is a reaction shot of Verbal looking surprised and scared. In the Special Edition it is changed to a reaction shot of Fenster.
