Trivia Hunter S. Thompson had previously been portrayed by Johnny Depp's Ed Wood (1994) co-star Bill Murray in Where The Buffalo Roam (1980). Prior to filming, Murray called Depp with the advice "Be careful, or you'll find yourself ten years from now still doing him...Make sure your next role is some drastically different guy." See more »
Goofs In the last scene of Duke sitting in the trashed hotel room, the camera moves across the liquid-covered floor towards him, and clearly tips over a candlestick on the left of the shot. See more »
Movie Connections Featured in Godzilla/Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas/Bulworth/The Horse Whisperer (1998). See more »

Crazy Credits The Ralph Steadman drawings from the book are put in with the credits, along with the Gonzo & Duke in the Red Shark picture that takes up the whole screen at the end. See more »
Quotes [watching Dr. Gonzo leave]
Raoul Duke: There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
