Trivia

Quentin Tarantino named the character "Jungle Julia Lucai" after his personal assistant, Victoria Lucai. See more »

Goofs

In the movie, the Challenger has window frames, which they hook the belts to that Zoë Bell holds onto while riding on the hood. Dodge Challengers do not have window frames like this. They were apparently added to prep the car for the sequence. You can also see the roll bar in several scenes. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the OPENING credits during the prologue driving sequence, after "Kurt Russell in" there is a quick ten-frame color animation of the title "Quentin Tarentino's Thunder Bolt" which cuts immediately to a simple grainy white-on-black title screen that says "Death Proof". See more »

Alternate Versions

The "missing reel" from the theatrical cut is included in the DVD/BLU-RAY single movie version. The entire lap dance is played out by Vanessa Ferlito. See more »

Hold on, I gotta come up! I gotta take the world's biggest f*ckin' p*ss!"
10 November 2013 | by lastliberal-853-253708See all my reviews

This film was an homage to the grind house flicks of the past. It's crowning achievement was the inclusion of some of the baddest gals on film, and one of the hottest.

Vanessa Ferlito as Arlene, who I would watch sitting in a chair for an hour anytime. It was well worth it to see that lap dance. Ferlito was clearly the star of this film.

Then there were the badass girls: Tracie Thoms as Kim and Rosario Dawson as Abernathy. I could watch them ride around in a car for an hour anytime.

It was the last third of the film where the action was ramped with some fantastic stunt work by badass Zoe Bell and, of course, the coup de grâce, Abernathy's boot in Stuntman Mike's (Kurt Russell) face. Heavenly.
