* ActorAllusion
** The character of Tommy Spinelli is obviously indebted to Creator/JoePesci's many [[HairTriggerTemper short-tempered]] mobster characters. In fact, a gag credit at the end of the film lists "Tommy Devito" (Pesci's character in ''[=GoodFellas=]'') as a bodyguard for Spinelli.
** Also, this is hardly the first time that [[TheChase Kristy Swanson has had a rich idiot father and gone vacationing in Mexico]].



* PlayingAgainstType: The director had previously won an Oscar for writing ''DeadPoetsSociety'' (an inspirational drama).

* ILied: When Laurie finds one of the heads, she screams loud enough for the entire hotel staff to hear. Charlie quickly grabs Laurie and muffles her mouth with his hand just as one of the employees opens the door. Charlie reassures him that everything is fine, prompting the employee to leave. Then Charlie tells Laurie that he will let her go if she promises not to scream again. Laurie gives her word - and then, once she is free, immediately resumes screaming!
