-->"Give the credit where itís due. But I disown the picture."
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script ran the film equivalent of three hours, had more of a FilmNoir vibe and was filled with {{Gorn}}. Moments that ended up not being filmed include: Ryder slaughtering an entire family, an eyeball appearing in a hamburger (this was replaced in a finger in a plate of French fries), a graphic sex scene between 'Gal' Galveston (the girl before Nash) and Jim, and a character being decapitated. The film underwent several rewrites which removed the gorier moments. Also, Fox was to have distributed the film before TriStarPictures took over.
