Trivia Brad Pitt wanted to leave the production, but was threatened by a lawsuit. In the February 2, 1997, issue of Newsweek, Pitt called the film a "disaster", and said that "it was the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking - if you can even call it that - that I've ever seen. I couldn't believe it". Rumors of fighting on the set (especially over which star would be the focus of the film) plagued the production. The original script was discarded and there were at least seven subsequent rewrites. Pitt said the final version was "a mess". "The script that I had loved was gone," he said. "I guess people just had different visions and you can't argue with that. But then I wanted out and the studio head said, 'All right, we'll let you out, but it'll be $63 million for starters." (Harrison Ford later noted that Pitt "forgot for a moment that he was talking to someone whose job it was to write this s*** down".) See more »
Goofs When taking Rory/Frankie in to the police station, Tom and his partner leave him alone, though handcuffed, in the rear seat. It is standard police practice to have one officer in back with the suspect, and seated directly behind the driver. This prevents any assault on the driver, or attempt to escape without being observed - or seen too late by way of the rear view mirror as happened here. See more »
