Demolition Man

Corrected entry: At the end of the highway chase between Spartan and Phoenix, when Spartan's police car crashed through the windows of the S.A.P.D., you can see that the glass broke before contact was made.

Correction: The car slams into the curb where the "landscaped area" is in front of the SAPD first, causing it to launch through the sign. If he hit the curb first, it would send debris flying forward, and it would only take one piece to begin to shatter the glass a split second before the car hits it.


Corrected entry: Right after escaping from prison, Simon Phoenix is at the computer thingy and he says, "Damn, I'm possessed" without getting a citation for violating the clean language act or whatever it is. Yet later he says "damn" again and gets a ticket.

Correction: The second time he says God-Damn, and that's why he gets a ticket.

Factual error: The display on John Spartan's cryogenic reads, "August 3, 2032," which will fall on a Tuesday. Later that same day, Huxley says to Warden Smithers, "It's a beautiful Monday morning" (00:11:30 - 00:12:15)

More quotes from Demolition Man

Trivia: The 'particle gun' that Phoenix picks up in the museum is actually a prototype of the real-life Heckler&Koch G11 rifle, the first gun ever to fire caseless ammunition. The gun and its ammo were developed in the Cold War to save the expenses for the cartridge case production. It was tested and modified for field use, but with the collapse of the Soviet state (which ended the Cold War) in 1991, the production program was cancelled. (00:45:30)

More trivia for Demolition Man

Question: I remember seeing this movie multiple times years back, and i distinctly remember the restaurant being Taco Bell, why the sudden badly dubbed pizza hut in the new television version?

Answer: A number of the European releases of the film replaced Taco Bell with Pizza Hut, as Pizza Hut has a significant international presence, whereas Taco Bell is relatively unknown outside the US, with very few restaurants. While most versions around these days keep the US original dialogue, the altered versions do occasionally crop up, particularly on television.
