Trivia: Kindergarten Cop
  • Actor Allusion: Of course Arnold gets in a "I'm back" in the end.
  • Completely Different Title:
    • The Cop's Menagerie (Greece)
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: God of War fans should be able to easily recognize the actress playing the principal in the film.
  • Reality Subtext: "Father was a cop, brother was a cop, mother was a cop's wife." Arnold does come from a family of cops; at least his father and brother were cops, just like Kimble and his family. Both Arnold and Kimble are Austrian, too.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Angela Bassett played the flight attendant that served O'Hara and Kimble breakfast just before the "pencil-snapping" scene.
    • A 5-year-old Odette Yustman plays one of the kids in Kimble's class, namely the one speaking Spanish.
    • As does a young Ben Diskin!
    • Jason Reitman himself plays another student. So does one of his sisters.
    • Miko Hughes (the autistic genius from Mercury Rising) plays another.
