- Box Office Bomb: Budget, $60 million. Box office, $31,186,986 (domestic), $73,498,611 (worldwide).
- Executive Meddling: In the comments to a rant by David Brin about the movie, one of the six writers, John Rogers, tells the sordid tale. For the sake of those who don't want to bother, it's basically summed up with this: "... This, by the way, is why screenwriting pays so well. They don't pay me to write. I'd write for free. They pay me NOT to punch people in the neck." To give an example of a thing the executives said to him: "John, we really like this last draft, but one thing bugs us. The whole idea of the north and south pole switching places — it's WAY over the top and unbelievable."
