Factual error: The movie takes place in Washington D.C, however the sequence with Hector Savage held up at his house was filmed in Los Angeles. This is obvious as the sequence features palm trees, and mountains are visible at times.

Question: How did Hector Savage get killed in Jane's apartment?

Answer: How did a dead lobster claw the first lady's boob? Why was Daniel Boone at a police shootout? It's a silly, cartoonish movie.

Brian Katcher

Why couldn't Savage just remove the fire hose, especially when he began inflating with the water? Plus, how could water possibly be spraying from his chest?

Because this a ridiculous parody movie and it's funny.
