Trivia

While filming the scene in which Doc notices Rudy waiting in ambush outside his hotel room, Michael Madsen dropped his pants off camera in order to get the desired look of surprise out of Baldwin.
Michael Madsen accidentally banged Burton Gilliam's face into the closet door for real. As a direct result of this, Gilliam had to be taken to the hospital to get four or five stitches in his lower lip and was thus unable to work for five days until the swelling went down and the stitches were subsequently removed.
