The film was shot partly in Calexico, California, and on one occasion the cast partied at the Roxy on Sunset Boulevard. Tom Cruise was dancing with an Asian girl, when her boyfriend noticed and slipped on a pair of brass knuckles. This was noticed by one of the leads, and they hurried Cruise out of the club, jokingly later saying they saved his beautiful molars. See more »
During the scene when Dave (Jackie Earle Haley) is flirting with the bar girl, her hand is wrapped around her cup. When Dave drops the Spanish Fly into her drink the cup is standing alone at the center of the table. In the next shot her hand is back around the cup again. See more »
I heard about this guy who got some spanish flies for his girlfriend, because she wasn't putting out. He gave her one and stopped at a liquor store or something, and when he came out guess what he found?
She was dead on top of the gearshift.
You know the same guy!
No, the same story.

This is a really bad movie. The only reason to see it is because it is early Tom Cruise, and of course he is gorgeous. I've been to Tijuana lotsa times, and let me tell you, some 16 years later, it's still a dirty, wicked city. If this movie conveys anything well, it's that.
