** King Willie's Jamaican gang was originally written to be Rastafarian, but the studio insisted their religion be changed to Voodoo, on the logic that [[ViewersAreMorons viewers would be unfamiliar with Rastafari.]] In spite of this, their characterization and dialogue remains largely unchanged, creating an example of CriticalResearchFailure.

They even discovered an actual dead body in the very real garbage you see in the scene.
