** Co-writer Charles [=McKeown=] plays Harvey Lime.
** The hands seen manipulating Tuttle's tools belonged to Creator/TerryGilliam, not Creator/RobertDeNiro. He's also the smoker in the Shangri-La tower who bumps into Sam.

* PosterGalleryBedroom: Sam's has posters of movie stars on his bedroom walls.



** Both a parody and a ShoutOut: the soldiers marching down the steps after the janitor's contraption a la ''Film/TheBattleshipPotemkin''. This film knows how to make film lovers laugh too.

A 1985 film by director Creator/TerryGilliam, depicting one man's futile struggle against a futuristic (and [[DystopiaIsHard heavily decayed]]) [[VastBureaucracy governmental bureaucracy]], drawing very heavily on Creator/GeorgeOrwell's ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'' -- although Gilliam admitted to not having read ''1984'' when he directed '''''Brazil'''''. The film stakes a serious claim towards being the most definite and ghastly example of ExecutiveMeddling in the entire history of cinema. If you're not watching the director's cut, you're not watching the real thing.
