Trivia: In the scene where the Panama Canal gets blown up, all the foliage in the background is made to look like marijuana.
Trivia: Harry-Gregson Williams was hired three weeks before the film's release to compose a new score for the movie. Paramount Pictures fired the original composer Marc Shaiman because his score didn't have a Jerry Bruckheimer feel to it.
Trivia: At the marketplace in Cairo, there is a character with a basket on his head. If you look closely you can see that the basket is filled with Goldfish crackers.
Trivia: The surrounding palm trees at the F.A.G. building, and the back round trees in Cairo are actually made of cut up one dollar bills. Also, in Kim Jong Il's mansion, hanging on the lights and chandeliers there are rocket bombs and grenades. The belt buckles of the Team are U.S. quarters and Gary has a set of nail clippers on his left leg. The surrounding poor suburbs of North Korea are made of Chinese food boxes. In Cairo, the lanterns in the tavern are made from cheese graters, vegetable steamers, and incense burners. The walkways in the Paris scene are made out of cast crescents as well as having all the recognizable monuments of Paris residing in one single plaza.
Trivia: During the song "Ronery," when Kim Jong il is on the balcony, the metal statue (of Kim Il-sung) in the foreground can be seen blinking and slightly swaying, revealing that it is actually a man in very heavy makeup. It is very possible that this may be the only live human in the entire film. (00:45:30)donkeyfart
