Continuity mistake: When Martin is at the Hippo Club and goes to the bathroom, he washes his hands and throws the paper on the floor. You see the paper on the floor as he leaves in a wide shot. In the last part of the scene there is another wide shot and the paper is gone.

Factual error: In the scene at the Cuppa Joe, it's a span of 3 minutes and 5 seconds from when the server takes their order to when she's walking back to the table with the food - that's not enough time for an order of pancakes to even finish cooking, let alone for all of those ingredients to be cooked and plated.

Marcella: You know, when you started getting invited to your ten year high school reunion, time is catching up.
Martin Q. Blank: Are you talking about a sense of my own mortality or a fear of death?
Marcella: Well, I never really thought about it quite like that.
Martin Q. Blank: Did you go to yours?
Marcella: Yes, I did. It was just as if everyone had swelled.

Trivia: The "goon" who winds up fighting John Cusack in the school hallway is Benny "The Jet" Urquidez. He is not only a world-class kickboxer but has also been John Cusack's real-life kickboxing coach for many years.

Question: Was Doom II (the game played in the Ultimart) ever ported to an arcade machine? I think it would be difficult to produce a real coin-op version of the game (a lot of custom hardware and programming - I don't think any arcade hardware could support Doom back then). Making a prop would be easy by sticking a PC with a TV monitor (to prevent flicker) in a cabinet mock-up, or even just run a pre-recorded tape of someone playing Doom and just have the actor mime it.

Answer: No, Doom II was never available in a commerical arcade cabinet. It must have been specifically designed for the movie.
