Trivia

Gerard Soeteman, long-time collaborator of director Paul Verhoeven, had written the first draft of the screenplay a long time before the film went into production. He wasn't involved in later re-writes by David Birke. Soeteman chose to remain uncredited, citing his dissatisfaction with the movie's emphasis on sexual content, especially how Paul Verhoeven had ditched many of the feminist elements in his script version in favor of "fumbling with genitals".
