When Wesley smashes his keyboard into his best friend's head as he leaves the office, the letters that come flying off the keyboard towards the screen spell "fuck you".
It's my anorexic boss' birthday. This means there's a certain amount of inter-office pressure to stand around the conference table, eating crappy food and pretending to worship her. Acting for five minutes like Janice doesn't make all our lives ...
In the scene where Fox is driving the Dodge Viper, she rams the police car into the barrels and gets water sprayed all over the her windshield. In the next scene the windshield is spotless and there are no streaks to indicate she hit the wipers.
There are no opening credits. The title appears as a headline on a newspaper well into the movie.
The Australian theatrical version cut a 10 second sequence where Wesley jams a gun through a dead man's mouth and uses his body as a shield while he shoots down other gunmen. This version was rated MA15+. Oddly enough, when the DVD came out, it had a sticker on the cover touting the film as "Uncut". While this was true -- and the violence in the gunfight had been re-instated -- the DVD carried the same MA15+ rating.
