The movie's "Bird on a Wire" title was derived from the Leonard Cohen song "Bird on the Wire" which features on the film's soundtrack. The production though did not chose to title the film exactly as the song's title, replacing the word "the" with the word "a". See more »

If you like Goldie Hawn ( fellas ) or Mel Gibson ( girls ) this is one not to miss. It's non stop action from start to finish and eminently suitable for a younger audience than its certificate would indicate. To see poor Mel having to switch characters each time he meets some one else is entertaining , especially when he has to appear to be "gay". How so many bullets manage to miss them both is of course down to the director, after all he could hardly kill them off !! A hilarious film, played for the most part, strictly for laughs, I wish the widescreen version was available on video.
