- Box Office Bomb: The film was largely lambasted by critics and failed at the box office, grossing only about $9.6 million domestically over a budget of $50 million.
- Creator Killer: This was one of two 1995 movies, the other being the NC-17 Showgirls, that began the disintegration of writer Joe Eszterhas's career, which in 1998 got the finishing blow from An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn.
- Star-Derailing Role: David Caruso had left NYPD Blue specifically to star in feature films. The failure of both the 1995 Kiss of Death remake and this pretty much wrecked his leading man status, and it wasn't until CSI: Miami that his career rebounded.
