Trivia Reportedly, when Jim Carrey came in to audition for Clint Eastwood for this film, he did not do one of his scenes from this movie, but instead did his Vegas Elvis Presley act, which cracked up Eastwood and his colleagues. See more »
Goofs Director Peter Swan tells Inspector Callahan that he encountered Harlan Rook at every film screening or other public appearance, where Rook's comments showed that he knew everything about Swan's films. Rook also constantly pitched his screenplay to him. Despite this extensive contact and familiarity, Swan does not recognize Rook when he works closely with him on a daily basis as his special effects supervisor under a fake name. See more »
