The movie was filmed in nine weeks, between April 20 and June 18, 1992, but it wasn't released until February 4, 1994, more than a year and a half after it was finished. Besides releasing all the later DVD versions of the movie in cropped 1.33:1 pan and scan format, instead of 2.35:1 widescreen, in which the movie was originally filmed, Miramax and Dimension Films also went and cut it down by five minutes before it was released theatrically only in eight hundred screens. The film was originally much harder, and featured greater violence and language, and most of the cuts were made in those scenes, because studios wanted to make it safer and more appealing to the general movie going audience. The uncut version of the film was never released. See more »

I want you to press the ignition button. You got me?
Ignition. Yeah. Shit. He can't read. I tell you what you do. Hold up that first finger. Tell me what you see.
No, it looks like an "I." That's the first letter in "ignition."

This has it all - guns, comedy, a stupid plot, senseless violence, explosions, drug dealers, Denis Leary, cleavage, and none of that stupid emotional baggage most films seem to adopt at some point - what more could a guy want? Definitely a great movie to watch when having a few drinks with some mates. My friends all constantly come back to watching this movie after a night out, it just has everything. Great B-grade performances from some top name actors like Denis Leary, Patrick Stewart, Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles. It's the sort of thing you could almost imagine yourself getting caught up in on a baaaaad holiday to South America.
I don't recommend any girls watch it, though I know a few who would find it amusing. To the people who say it is super-violent, try watching the nightly 6 o'clock news. Far worse stuff happens every day in real life.
