Did You Know?

Trivia

There was originally a scene between the High Roller (Jon Hamm) and Babydoll (Emily Browning) where he seduces and makes love to her. The MPAA demanded it be cut down and the scene ended up looking like he was taking advantage of her. Zack Snyder felt it sent the wrong message, and ultimately cut the scene entirely, later featuring it in it's full form on the Director's Cut release. Zack Snyder and Emily Browning have been vocal about their displeasure about the situation. See more »

Goofs

During the castle raid Babydoll puts down her machine gun when approaching the baby dragon. When the mother dragon comes up and the girls retreat, Babydoll's gun is still where she left it. After the girls leave, but before the dragon climbs out of the tower, the camera angle changes and the gun is no longer where Babydoll left it. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

What more could you want?

There was also a show, a brothel, Nazis, a monster, a samurai sword and even more babes running around and defying the odds.

I loved it.
