Easter egg: Insert Disc 2 into your DVD player. When you reach the main menu and "Action Sequences" is highlighted, click the right button. You will see a bus enclosed in a square. When you click it, it shows an alternate scene for the final bus explosion that may have been for the in-flight movie. DVD Version: 2002 Special Edition (includes extra disc).

Continuity mistake: Early in the film, Jack shoots Harry through the left thigh (taking the hostage out of the equation). At the police awards ceremony, Harry is using a cane on his right side and his limp favors his right leg. After the ceremony, in the bar, when Harry gets drunk and starts to leave, he's using his cane on the left side and his limp favors his left leg.

Trivia: The famous "Dukes of Hazzard" sequence was the filmmakers' wry commentary on the uncompleted state of Interstate 105, which had become a running joke among LA motorists. It was finally (and quite uncoincidentally) completed in late 1993 shortly before the film's release, years behind schedule.
