Filming the cable car chase with real San Francisco cable cars would've meant closing down a major thoroughfare for several days. Instead, fake cable car tracks were painted on quieter Jones Street, and most of the shots filmed there used motorized cars. See more »

[On watching a foreign film]
My eyes still hurt from reading that movie.

I was very surprised once I saw this movie. The action was very cool, Eddie was very funny and good. This is the type of movie that a father and his son should see and both enjoy. This is a true guilty pleasure. Even though the movie makes Eddie seem like the only capable character at talking someone out of commiting a crime. But thats what made it fun and goofy! The movie didn't take itself seriously, I like that. See it but don't expect THE GODFATHER just expect a goofy action flick. 8
