Trivia: When O'Neal is checking the taxi's frequency, the sheet he looks at has Scott Collins and Len Wiseman on it. They were prop assistants on this film as well as Stargate and Independence Day, all made by Roland Emmerich.

Trivia: The mayor is named Ebert and his assistant is named Gene. These two were parodies of two well-known movie critics: the late Gene Siskel (who died in 1999 from complication from brain surgery) and Roger Ebert. They gave bad reviews for "Stargate" (1994) and "Independence Day" (1996) which were also made by Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, so this is also their way of getting back at them. The actors who play them also look similar to Siskel and Ebert.

Trivia: In response to fan-backlash against this film, Toho (the Japanese company responsible for the "Godzilla" film series) decided to have some fun at the expense of the film. The film "Godzilla: Final Wars" made this movie officially canonical with the "Millennium Era" film series, by suggesting that the events of this film happened, but that it was misconstrued as a Godzilla attack by the US. To even further parody this film, the "Godzilla" from this movie appears, being rebranded "Zilla", and is killed by the Japanese Godzilla within seconds.

Trivia: Director Roland Emmerich was a massive fan of Spielberg's films. Particularly "Jurassic Park." Emmerich decided to model this film more around "Jurassic Park" than the original "Godzilla" series. (In particular the "Baby Godzilla" sequences, which features many callbacks and references to the raptor scenes from "Jurassic Park").

Trivia: The cop that we see when Godzilla interrupts the mayor's speech also played a cop in Independence Day, the one whose car got wrecked when the alien arrived.

Trivia: Director Roland Emmerich was not a fan of the "Godzilla" character or franchise, and originally did not want to make the film. It was only after the studio informed him that he could do "whatever he wanted" with the material that he agreed to make the film.

Trivia: When questioned about his identity at the beached remnants of a fish cannery ship, the man responds "Lao Che Property and Casualty Insurance." Lao Che was the name of the gangster that hired Indy in the Temple of Doom to get the remains of Neurhachi.

Trivia: The Japanese ship that Godzilla attacks at the start of the film is called the Kobayashi Maru, in reference to the ill-fated starship that features in test scenarios in the Star Trek franchise.

Mistakes

Godzilla noticeably changes size throughout the movie. For example, she is shown lairing in a subway tunnel, but she cannot fit into the Hyde Park tunnel (taxicab scene), which is significantly larger than a subway tunnel. Also, compare the size of Godzilla's eye next to Matthew Broderick during the fish scene and Godzilla's death scene. The eye is way bigger in the latter.
