Natural Born Killers

Trivia: Almost all of the prisoners in the prison and the prisoners taking place in the riot, were in fact real inmates of that prison, with over 80% of them doing hard time for violent crimes.


Trivia: Just in case you haven't seen the extras, the man in one of the first scenes in the diner who disappears while reading the paper in the booth is Owen, the same guy that helps them out of the prison at the end, possibly making him some sort of guardian angel for the two? (You have to see the alternate ending though).

Trivia: 10 minutes into the film they show Mallory's family; Mallory's brother in the film is really director Oliver Stone's son Shawn.

Trivia: This film inspired over a dozen copycat murders, some of which involved imagery and dialogue from the movie. One victim's family even attempted to sue Warner Brothers.

Trivia: Director Oliver Stone chose Woody Harrelson for the role of Mickey based on the fact that Woody's real father was arrested/convicted of murder as a hitman. Stone was quoted as saying "I could see that killer instinct in Woody's eyes, and although it scared me, he was perfect for this role."


Trivia: Director Oliver Stone wanted singer Tori Amos for the role of Mallory. She was interested in the role until Oliver told Tori that he also wanted to use her song "A Gun And Me" to play every time Mallory kills somebody. The song was an account of Tori's real life rape. Tori responded by slapping Oliver hard in the face and then walking away.

Trivia: Quentin Tarantino, who wrote the original script, wasn't overly impressed with the rewrites. He then asked to have his writing credits removed. He is therefore not credited for the screenplay, but for the story.

Continuity mistake: When Mickey and Mallory are marrying themselves on the bridge Mickey cuts both of their hands with his knife and then they hold hands and the blood is dripping off their hands but the next time you see their hands there is only a little blood around the cuts.

Mickey: You're gonna make it, Mal. Get mad.

More quotes from Natural Born Killers

Question: When Woody Harrelson is eating the key lime pie in the opening scene, how exactly was that pie made? It looked more translucent like Jello, as opposed to regular key lime pies, which resemble cheese cake.


Answer: Yes, it definitely does not look like a key lime pie. I suspect that because Woody Harrelson is a strict vegan, that it is a substitute made with vegan ingredients.

Answer: My take: The Key Lime pie Mickey eats in the diner looks cheap and trashy on purpose... a garish trailer park version of that pie. The crust isn't even cooked. I think it has more to do with the demographic theme of the diner patrons rather than Harrelson being a vegan.
