Trivia: When they do the handbrake turn at the very end of the film, we see the gear stick for a fraction of a second. Freeze-frame it and you'll see it has the initials "HF" on it.

Trivia: When Skinner passes the first two murders in his car, the music playing in his car relates to the people being murdered - Romeo and Juliet for the actors, and Fire for the house explosion And at the fair he's saying "splat the rat" referring to Tim Messenger.

Trivia: In the credits, the 'music supervisor' is listed as Nick Angel, same name as the main character. This comes after the roll of actors during a list of some production staff before the roll of characters. It follows 'music by David Arnold' and before 'casting by Nina Gold'.


Trivia: Most of the scenes and lines this movie parodies come from Bad Boys II and Point Break, except for one. The line the doctor says: "I brought you into this world Danny, seems rather fitting I'll be the one to take you out of it", is from The Island, another Michael Bay movie.


Trivia: The Somerfield store used in the film was an actual Somerfield store in the City of Wells at the time of filming and the company welcomed the film crew using their store for all exterior shots. It was soon taken over by Co-Op who kept it as a supermarket until 2015 where it was closed down and remains vacant to this day.
