Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
Demi Moore was called back to re-shoot some scenes, and had to wear a wig since she had already shaved her head for G.I. Jane (1997).
Demi Moore had no fewer than eight assistants on the film - one for make-up, a hairstylist, a costumer, a personal assistant, a personal trainer, a motion trainer and two security personnel.
Underwent last minute editing when preview audiences laughed at the wrong parts.
Demi Moore was paid $12.5 million for this film, a record fee for an actress at the time. The film was more popular in overseas theaters than in American theaters.
Burt Reynolds was not originally actually sought by the production for the part of politician Dave Dilbeck. Reynolds wanted the part badly and so contacted Castle Rock studio head Rob Reiner personally and went to Miami, Florida to audition. He took a pay cut considerably lower than to what he had received during the heyday of his career.
This movie is considered Burt Reynolds big comeback movie even though he had appeared in both The Player (1992) and Cop & ½ (1993). This is because of the attention the film got and the type of character he played. Also, his part in The Player (1992) was a cameo as part of an ensemble whilst Cop & ½ (1993) was essentially a children's film.
The little girl who plays Demi Moore's daughter in the movie is actually her real life daughter, Rumer Willis.
In the original trailer for the film, we see a low angle shot of Ving Rhames and Pandora Peaks. That shot did not appear in the film because it took place during the original climax of the film. That climax was re-shot after being shown to a preview audience. Orginally, the final sequence took place in a sugar cane field. After preview audiences were uncomfortable with the scene, it was rewritten and re-shot in the sugar shack. We still see the final shots of the original sequence that shows a character being taken away in handcuffs.
