* TakeThatCritics: Molly Fisher, the film critic who becomes the second murder victim is based on Pauline Kael, in response to her accusing the first film of promoting "fascism." Something about this woman seems to rub directors the wrong way (probably her habit of [[YouKeepUsingThatWord indiscriminately throwing around the term "fascist"]] to describe things she doesn't like, as well as her well-earned reputation of being a proto-{{hipster}}), since she got another TakeThat in ''Film/{{Willow}}''.

Harry knows how many rounds are left and when the villain has fired off the last round, Harry says, [[CountingBullets "You're out of bullets]].
