One of three 1990 movies starring Mel Gibson which were first released in that year. The other pictures were Hamlet (1990) and Air America (1990). Bird on a Wire (1990) though was shot in mid-1989, but did not debut in theaters until 1990. See more »
A "J" edit is used to mostly hide a dialog change when Joe says the line, "Relax. I'm doing everything I can do." The video cut takes place as he's sitting down and turning towards the camera and it's obvious he's not saying what we hear. There's also a slight, but noticeable, audio change when the dialog starts matching the video. See more »

This movie rocks--so what that it's implausible, it's fun to watch! Just watch the car chase scene towards the beginning--it's more fun than most of the recent ones, (esp. when the little yellow trolley comes out instead of the train) albeit less realistic. I wish Goldie Hawn's character was smarter though, and more independent. But Mel Gibson rocks.
