Trivia Biff Manard was actually drunk while playing Hap Ashby, and Tim Thomerson had to literally man-handle Biff because he had no idea what he was supposed to be doing or where to go. See more »
Goofs The "long second" device is supposed to stretch out 1 second of time to appear as 10 seconds. The first time, it lasts for some 90 seconds, and we see a bullet moving at well under 1 mph, indicating a reduction factor of much more than 10. The second time, the effect lasts for about 45 seconds. See more »
