When Vince is getting directions to meet the general, the streets include "United Fruit Boulevard," a reference to the U.S. Company that historically dominated much of Central America and gave rise to the expression "a banana republic." See more »
During the car chase in Tijada, the same cars are used repeatedly in different shots. For example, they pass the same gray pickup truck three different times and the same yellow sedan three times. See more »
This truly hilarious comedy is one of the funniest movies of the period. No one does the sort of deadpan face that says "I can't believe what I'm hearing and seeing" like Alan Arkin. Peter Falk's comic abilities match his skill in heavier roles. The interplay between them is marvelous, matching that of Lemmon & Matthau (one wishes they had made more films together). Many side-splitting moments, and some superbly comic dialogue. Not to be missed.
Serpentine, Shel, serpentine!!!
