Trivia: The character Freddy Noonan appears in, or is referenced in many scenes yet is more or less an afterthought. This is the same name as Amelia Earhart's navigator, who was involved in one of the most famous real life aerial mysteries, but is also a largely forgotten person.
Trivia: Roger Ebert, in his original review, declared Armageddon to be "an assault on the ears, the eyes, the brain, common sense and the human desire to be entertained." He later named it the worst movie of the year and one of the worst films of all time. Weirdly, his reviewing partner, Gene Siskel, gave it a positive review.
