Trivia:
A movie theater showing the film Clue is briefly visible in the background. Carrie Fisher was supposed to be one of the stars of Clue, but she had to enter a drug rehab facility only a few days before filming was supposed to start, so she was replaced at the last minute by Lesley Ann Warren. Fisher, worried that her drug problems could make it difficult for her to work again, accepted the role in Hollywood Vice Squad right after being released from rehab, and then satirized it in her novel and movie Postcards From the Edge.See more »
