PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
An American agent, under false suspicion of disloyalty, must discover and expose the real spy without the help of his organization.
The scene that takes place in a glass-walled restaurant with a big lobster tank in the middle and three huge fish tanks overhead was Tom Cruise's idea. There was sixteen tons in all of the tanks, and there was a concern that when they detonated, a lot of glass would fly around. Brian De Palma tried the sequence with a stuntman, but it did not look convincing and he asked Cruise to do it, despite the possibility that the actor could have drowned.
Try any sleight of hand with my money and I'll cut your throat.
Hunt is at the laptop, messaging Job 3:14. He types the scripture, including the word 'palaces'. In the actual bible page shown on screen, the word is 'places'.
The opening credits contain several plot points from the movie.
The in-joke where Tom Cruise goes online with his laptop by typing in, not Usenet, but Crusenet, has been changed in the US DVD versions to where he types "internet access."
