When Sonny's car goes over the embankment the car is buried up to the doors in snow. A few minutes later the snow is flat - packed down by dog sleds and vehicles. The car is able to be freed and driven away. Unfortunately, the spinning tires are screeching like they are on dry pavement. Tires on snow and ice do not make this sound in real life. See more »
"The Survivors" is characteristic of Robin Williams's movies before "Good Morning, Vietnam": innocuously silly. In this case, he and Walter Matthau join up after surviving a robbery, and Williams becomes a survivalist. The whole thing is pretty goofy - maybe even pointless - but some of the gags make up for that. I will say that it's not the funniest movie for either star by a long shot; both have done far better than this. But, it's the sort of movie that you sit around in your underwear and watch; it does a respectable job showing both stars' talents. Good for a few laughs.
Shooting a man's gun. Ha!
