Trivia

Not only does Conrad singing 'We Three Kings' give the film its title, it also foreshadows his death. Had he survived the events of the film, the more logical title would be "Four Kings."


Quotes

Troy Barlow: Are we shooting?
Soldier: What?
Troy Barlow: Are we shootin' people or what?
Soldier: Are we shooting?
Troy Barlow: That's what I'm asking you!
Soldier: What's the answer?
Troy Barlow: I don't know the answer! That's what I'm trying to find out!


Goofs

When Chief and Conrad are arguing about which CD to listen to in a car, Chief puts a disc in which starts playing "easy listening classics". Conrad subsequently ejects it. The whole sequence takes place way too quickly for a typical CD player: the CD both starts playing too quickly and is ejected too quickly as well.


Crazy Credits

For Sergeant Major Jim Parker, 1946 - 1998


Alternate Versions

DVD version includes four deleted scenes:

  • Giving birth: After Troy looks down at the Iraqi soldier he has just shot, we see a flash back to his daughter being born. There is also more footage of the soldiers having their pictures taken with the dead Iraqi soldier.
  • Bunny: During the party at the start of the film, mail is given out. Troy receives photos of his wife and daughter. while Conrad recieves a handgun (which he uses throughout the film), inside a chocolate rabbit.
  • Decoy: After Conrad tells the hairdressing iraqis that "Troy gave me this haircut", Archie sees a stationary verhicle and some sandbags. Conrad accidently shoots at the vehicle, which then rapidly deflates.
  • Snowglobes: After the battle to rescue Troy comes a scene where Archie gathers up loads of snowglobes, which depict the nativity at a petrol station! They then drain these, (a close up of a hand holding the three kings that were within the snowglobes), and drink the water inside.
