Did You Know?
Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell
) at one point says "You know, for the kids." This is a direct reference to The Hudsucker Proxy
(1994) in which Campbell plays a supporting role. The line is a slightly different version of the movie's famous, oft-uttered line: "You know, for kids." Sam says "You know, for THE kids" because he's referring to 2 kids specifically (Corey and Tanya, the kids he's helping out) unlike in 'Hudsucker' where the line refers to kids in general. See more
When Fiona picks the lock, the cylinder (that the key goes in) doesn't turn, yet the door opens. See more
When you need to get into a building in a hurry, you can always count on a fire exit. Every building has them. It's just about knowing how to use them. The right shape charge will put a big enough dent in a steel door to disengage the lock, which can turn a fire exit into a convenient and unexpected entrance. A coil of detcord attached to a rubber mat will give you the explosion you need and allow you to point it wherever you need it to go. S.W.A.T. teams call it a hockey puck.
