Josie and the Pussycats picture

Trivia: At the beginning, when Wyatt is "removing" Dujour, he says to the pilot, "Take the Chevy to the levee." I'm fairly certain this is a reference to Don McLean's song "American Pie," written for the death of Buddy Holly, a famous 1950 rock-and-roll singer. One of the lines in the song is, "...took my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry."

Mean Machine picture

Trivia: At the end of the movie the match commentator gives the following speech: "Guards of Pentonville, guards of Wandsworth, Walton nick in Liverpool, policemen of Britain, traffic wardens and parole officers, wheel clampers, your boys have taken a hell of a beating today. A hell of a beating." This speech is a direct reference to Norwegian sports commentator Bjørge Lillelien who made British headlines, when Norway in 1981 beat England out of the world cup qualifier.

Rush Hour 2 picture

Trivia: During the scene where Zhang Zhiyi gets knocked out and Chris Tucker calls her, "a crazy a$$ b&%*h", that take was taken around 20 times due to the fact that Tucker was very conservative in trying to make up something to insult Zhang Zhiyi but not too bad. The director finally pulled Tucker aside and convinced him that he HAD to say something very insulting because of Zhang's character. And that's how the last take and the final cut for the insult was done.

Made picture

Trivia: If the final scene of the movie (at the birthday party) seemed a little "off," that's because it was shot by a different cinematographer. Jon and Vince weren't satisfied with previously shot endings, and agreed to give up their entire salaries for the whole movie, in order to pay for this ending.

Evolution picture

Trivia: "Evolution" was originally written as a serious sci-fi thriller by writer Don Jakoby. When Ivan Reitman signed on to direct, he felt the concept would make for a good ensemble comedy, similar to his film "Ghostbusters." Jakoby actually liked the idea of reworking the film into a comedy so much, he stayed with the project and assisted in re-writes.
