The final negotiating point to convince Mel Gibson to do this film, was the offer of a use of a producer's house for the summer, allowing Gibson to shoot the film, and give his large family an excellent summer vacation home. See more »
Liberal use of stuntmen and women with faces visible, clearly not the main actors. In fight scenes, car chases, motorcycle riding, running from tigers, falling down cliffs, and so on. See more »

If you like Goldie Hawn ( fellas ) or Mel Gibson ( girls ) this is one not to miss. It's non stop action from start to finish and eminently suitable for a younger audience than its certificate would indicate. To see poor Mel having to switch characters each time he meets some one else is entertaining , especially when he has to appear to be "gay". How so many bullets manage to miss them both is of course down to the director, after all he could hardly kill them off !! A hilarious film, played for the most part, strictly for laughs, I wish the widescreen version was available on video.
