Trivia

The plane that Quinn flies is a DeHavilland Beaver. Star Harrison Ford not only owned a DeHaviland Beaver, but he also flew the one in the movie. He had to go through several certifications for the insurance company to allow him not only to fly, but to also fly with the rest of the cast in the plane.
Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis are speaking Maori in their roles as pirates. However they didn't know how to say the complex lines they were supposed to (about gold and pirates, etc), so they just ad-libbed random everyday stuff such as what they were cooking for dinner. (From Temuera's biography "Temuera Morrison: From Haka to Hollywood").
Harrison Ford personally picked out Anne Heche to be his co-star over much greater stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and Uma Thurman. Had Ryan been chosen, this would have been the second time she would have played a character involved with a pilot. The first was Top Gun (1986).
It's the same island where the movie King Kong (1976) was filmed.
When Robin (Anne Heche) asks Quinn (Harrison Ford) what age he is, Quinn hints that he's over fifty before whispering to her the answer (To which she says "You still look good," and Quinn replies, "I still am good!"). Ford was actually 55 by the time this movie came out.
At her audition, Anne Heche told Harrison Ford that Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) was the first movie she ever saw.
The DeHaviland Beaver used in the film is the exact same one used in the production of The Edge (1997). It crashed in both movies.
Jacqueline Obradors' parents are from Argentina. Her character is supposedly a native Pacific islander. In the film, she hurries up her boyfriend saying "Dale metele, pibe!", which is an Argentine slang phrase meaning, more or less: "C'mon, boy!".
Co-stars Harrison Ford and Temuera Morrison are both veterans of the "Star Wars" film franchise. Ford appeared as Han Solo and Morrison portrayed Jango Fett.
Harrison Ford is a licensed pilot.

First high-profile film role for Anne Heche. Two days after being cast in this movie, Heche was introduced to the public at large as Ellen DeGeneres's new girlfriend, leading director Ivan Reitman to say, "We hired a relatively unknown and now she's one of the most famous women in America."

Harrison Ford: [nuclear] Ford pronounces "nuclear" as "nucular", much as Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and George W. Bush are famous for. See also Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
