Added DiffLines:

* StandardPoliceMotto: The first cadet interviewed for the team stammers out "To protect and serve" when asked why he wants to join the force. Stone gives a slightly more elaborate, "To protect the property and citizenry of the City of Chicago." Malone isn't impressed by either.

film. It's both a lesson and a warning Malone gives several times to Ness.



* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Well, sure, Capone himself was a CorruptCorporateExecutive who wasn't above killing his own associates or starting a MobWar, but the real Al was ''much'' less monstrous than the version here. Also, the movie's Capone had no problem killing kids, while the real Capone tried to avoid any bystander injuries in gun battles, and paid their hospital bills for them if they were hurt.
