Trivia: Shortly before the film's release, actor Phil Hartman was shot and killed by his wife, who then killed herself. The film was re-edited to remove any scenes where the soldiers had their weapons pointed directly at Hartman. Also removed was one of his lines: "I think I'm having an aneurysm."Jeff Swanson
Trivia: When Brick Bazooka loses his legs to Alan's bike gear, he emits a high-pitched, half-choked scream just before he hits the ground. This is the infamous "Wilhelm scream" and can be heard in several other movies as well: in Star Wars - A New Hope, when Luke shoots a stormtropper in the shaft-swinging scene; in Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers, when an Elf warrior is thrown off the Helm's Deep wall; and in Lord Of The Rings - Return of The King, when a Gondor soldier fleeing from Osgilliath is snatched up and dumped by a Nazgul steed. The earliest movie I have heard the scream in so far is the 1954 horror movie 'Them' (when Ben Peterson is killed by a giant ant near the end). Wilhelm screamWiki-Info
