Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Christopher McQuarrie's brother, a U.S. Navy S.E.A.L., was the Technical Advisor for the gunfight scenes, hence the realism of the coordinated movements, use of cover, and room-clearing tactics used by Parker and Longbaugh. See more »
Goofs At the end of the film, after the shoot out at the motel, Parker and Longbaugh wonder why the doctor, followed by Abner, went south. When we see the two cars that are supposedly headed "south," we can see the sun rising behind the cars, to the drivers' right, which would mean that they are heading north, as the sun rises in the east.

Crazy Credits Henry Griffin is listed as P. Whipped. He is the guy whose girlfriend is yelling at Parker and Longbaugh and ends up fighting them, thus he is "P[ussy] Whipped." See more »
