The combination to unlock the nuclear suitcase is 08061945 (August 6, 1945), which is the date the United States dropped the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima. See more »
The nuclear football is carried in rotation between the services, in the film its stated that the Air Force carries it. The football contains a card with launch codes, an identifier device, a computer with launch capabilities and a keyboard. It is twice the size of the one in the film. See more »
You should see this movie, it is interesting and entertaining. It reminds me of the Cuban Missile Crisis and another conflict with another country. It was good especially since it seemed like a low budget film due to the only setting through the movie was in the Diner.
