Trivia

Two days after the film opened, two men poured petrol over a ticket booth on the Brooklyn subway and set it alight in an incident similar to the one depicted in the film. The booth attendant was burned and later died of his injuries. Consequently New York subway workers called for a boycott of the film and the removal of all the posters from every station. Republican senator Bob Dole quickly came out in support of them. Columbia Pictures refused to bow to their demands. See more »

Goofs

The dispatcher, watching his monitor as the money train collides with a regular B train for the first time, immediately says "Oh my God." The monitor would not show information precise enough to identify that the trains had actually collided. See more »

Money Train=Runny Brain.
15 July 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The funniest film I've ever seen. What? It was supposed to be serious? What about the bloke who was in charge of the money train? His impersonation of Dr Evil was spot on. And what about Woody's hilarious "Down with the brothers" shtick? I'm glad I live in London, though. Her Majesty's Railway Inspectorate would never sanction trains that turn multiple cartwheels just because you put them in reverse. Purleeze.
