Scarface

Trivia: The Playstation 2/PC game "Grand Theft Auto - Vice City" by Rockstar Games is modeled on Scarface; the mansion, cars, environment, buildings, the Babylon Club ('Malibu Club' in the game), and even some of the game scenarios are similar (for instance, taking over the mansion and chainsaw scenes).

Trivia: When Tony meets with his lawyer after being caught, the lawyer states that he can get Tony acquitted from the drugs charges, but he will get sent to jail for tax evasion. Al Capone - the real life "Scarface" - was convicted and sent to prison for this very same crime.

Trivia: In the final scene when Tony's house is being raided, there is a moment where he attempts to grab a gun and then lets go immediately. What happened was that the gun was so hot, it actually burnt Al Pacino's (Tony) hand and he was unable to perform for about a week or two. That allowed director Brian DePalma to shoot the scenes of the shooters moving throughout the house.

Trivia: All of the music on the "Grand Theft Auto 3" Flash FM radio station is heard in various scenes in Scarface. The DJ's name also happens to be Tony.

Trivia: Miriam Colon plays Al Pacino's mother in the movie, even though in real life she's only four years older than him.

Visible crew/equipment: When the first deal goes wrong and the man with the chainsaw jumps out the window you can clearly see him land on a grey crash mat because it lifts up at the corners. (00:27:55)

More quotes from Scarface

Question: When Scarface shoots Frank, Mel says "you can't shoot a cop" and Tony says "who said you was a cop?" This is stated as though Tony wasn't supposed to know Mel was a cop, but did anyway. Though Tony already knew this as mentioned to Mel earlier; "How do I know you're the last cop I'm gonna have to grease?" Why would this dialog take place if Scarface already knew prior?

Answer: Montana replies "who said you were a cop" as sarcasm. Tony knows Mel is a police officer but insinuates that because he is shady and corrupt, Mel doesn't deserve the title. Tony sees Mel as another criminal, not as a police officer.
