Personal Quote:

(On Undisputed (2002)) "Some say Hollywood movies that are made about boxing are just metaphors for other things, I think I've made one that's actually about boxing and not a metaphor." See more »

Trivia:

He purposefully made Brewster's Millions (1985) "to improve his bank account and success quotient". He later called the movie "an aberration in the career line" being his only flat out comedy. He added that "whatever [the film's] deficiencies, I think the wistful quality was there. I was happy about that. The picture did well and made money.". See more »

Trademark:

At least one character in many of his films drives a Sky BlueCadillac Convertible. e.g. _48 Hours (1982)_, Brewster's Millions (1985), _RedHeat (1988)_ See more »
