In May 2013, an employee at the Calgary, Alberta landfill discovered some film negative in the mounds of trash. He looked closer, and found images of a man kneeling over a gruesome murder victim. Thinking it could be evidence of a crime, he submitted the negatives to the Calgary Police Services. After a short investigation, they recognized Dan Aykroyd, and contacted his agent for information, finally concluding that it was simply a discarded negative of Loose Cannons. The investigation was immediately closed, and everyone had a good laugh. Aykroyd jokingly told TMZ: "The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs." See more »
When Grimmer shoots at Ellis behind the stained glass at Grand Central Station, his gun locks as if he has fired his last round of a magazine. When the camera comes back to him, the gun is back to ready position without his cycling a magazine. See more »
Some movies you want to see just because you want to see how bad they are and that is the reason why I wanted to see "Loose Cannons". This movie was strange as a comedy because the jokes just weren't funny. Also as a cop-buddy movie it doesn't work due to the chemistry between it's lead actors. Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd play off each other like two actors who needed the money. The premise was oddly interesting which concerned a piece of Hitler memorabilia and Aykroyd as a schizo cop trying to come to grips with his demons (aka his other personalities).
What could have been an inspiring premise for something unique and twisted in the cop-buddy genre instead gets bogged down by generic action sequences, lame jokes and slapdash direction.
