* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Series/{{JAG}} AJ Chegwidden]] was a police sergeant.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script ran the film equivalent of three hours 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.
** Ryder was written with Music/KeithRichards in mind. The director's personal choice for Ryder was Creator/TerenceStamp while Creator/SamElliott had the best audition and almost got the part (a salary dispute led him not to be cast). Music/DavidBowie and Music/{{Sting}} were also considered.
