Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Gina Gershon recommended Joe Pantoliano for the role of Caesar. See more »
Goofs When Violet shoots Caesar, he falls backwards in the paint. As he hits the floor, you can see a wire attached to his left pant leg. This wire is used by the special effects crew to set off the gunshots ripping through Caesar's shirt. You can also see the wire outline in the paint on the floor just before and after Caesar hits the floor. See more »
