Sandra Bullock's costume during the Taco Bell sequence was made of stones and gems weighing approximately forty pounds. After the fight scene outside the restaurant when her character gleefully jumps and replays the action, her dress actually started to rip, which is why she is holding her arms to her sides after Stallone walks away.

When introduced, Edward Friendly is all about "... I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. ..." Yet, once the Cocteau regime is overthrown, he tells Associate Bob to change his attire and hairstyle. See more »
Demolition Man is just good, goofy fun. You plop yourself down when nothing else is on and watch Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes blow up everything around them. Snipes plays Simon Phoenix over the top and that's exactly where he's supposed to be. Stallone has some good lines in this film, and he's actually a funny guy when he plays things straight. Of course, no action film would be complete without the prerequisite snappy one liners, outlandish action and bullets flying everywhere. A silly, but fun film to watch.
