Trivia

Production wrapped in New York City at 6 a.m. on July 31, 1990, and several hours later, the cast and crew boarded a plane to begin the second leg of their international odyssey. After one day of preparation, filming resumed, this time in Rome, Italy, directly across the street from one of the most recognizable wonders of the world, the famed landmark, the Coliseum. Many famous locations throughout Rome and its environs were used for the picture, including the Piazza Navona, the Roman Forum, and the 16th Century Villa Farnese in nearby Caprarola, a vintage town and commune in the Viterbo province in the Lazio region of central Italy.

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Long ago, the Duke of Milan commissioned a little known artist to erect a Mammoth statue of a horse. The time was 1481... The artist was Leonardo da Vinci... The guy on the donkey's just a guy on a donkey.

Much Better than Rumored...
1 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

A movie that I've never understood the critics' response against. Yes, it's primarily a Bruce Willis ego-trip. Who cares? It's a _fun_ Bruce Willis ego-trip. He smirks, smartmouths, struts, sings, and strides through every scene. But he still doesn't manage to steal the thunder of Danny Aiello, James Coburn and his band of covert agents, and Sandra Bernhard and Richard Grant in a truly bizarre series of sequences as eccentric (to put it mildly) billionaires. Andie MacDowell doesn't make much of a romantic lead, but even she gets a goofball sequence when she starts speaking in Dolphin-ish.
