Corrected entry: It is rumored that the body in the body bag was Kevin Costner. He was mearly an extra, which was uncredited.

Correction: It's not a rumour and Costner wasn't an extra - his character (Alex) had a considerable speaking role, all shown in flashback. These flashbacks made the film three and a half hours long, so director Lawrence Kasdan cut the lot.

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Nick and Sam come upon Richard having a midnight snack in the kitchen you can see a small bright whitish reflection of some kind of equipment in the top left (our left) kitchen window, down in the lower right corner. There is no character movement or other scene related explanation for this reflection. It moves and fades during the scene, most dramatically at the end of the scene. (00:37:20)
