Trivia: 2 differences between The Bible and the Movie. 1) Aaron did not doubt Moses in the Bible. In fact Aaron did most of the speaking before Pharaoh and actually performed some of the miracles. 2) Moses murdered the Egyptian task master. He did not accidentally kill him. Pharaoh wanted to kill Moses because of this, not try to convince him to stay.Mark English
Trivia: At the beginning of the movie, when The Dude is writing a check for the cream at the grocery, look at the date on the check. Sept 11, 1991. A few seconds later we see George Bush Sr. talking about Iraq. So here we have a scene containing Sept. 11th, George Bush and references to the Middle East in a movie that takes place in 1991.

Trivia: In the courtroom scene, all the people that have turned to color have to sit on the upper level. This is reminiscent of "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1963) where, in a similarly-built southern courthouse in the 1930's, all the "colored people" (African Americans) were relegated to the upper level.Krista
Trivia: The trivia and in jokes abound in this film.

As a result of curious professors and investigative journalists trying to identify the author, the person was identified as Joe Klein, an American magazine columnist who was working for the newsmagazine Newsweek. Investigators had shown that the writing style found in "Primary Colors" is identical to the writing style found in Klein's Newsweek articles.megamii
Trivia: In the end credits, an actor is credited as playing Young Ruafo. There are no scenes in the film which this character appears, this is a scene cut from the film, but they forgot to erase the credit. The explanation is that young Ruafo was filmed in the original Insurrection ending, before producers decided on a different (more action based) death for Ruafo and so had him burn on the exploding ship.
Trivia: Director Roland Emmerich was a massive fan of Spielberg's films. Particularly "Jurassic Park." Emmerich decided to model this film more around "Jurassic Park" than the original "Godzilla" series. (In particular the "Baby Godzilla" sequences, which features many callbacks and references to the raptor scenes from "Jurassic Park").
