Small Soldiers

Continuity mistake: At the first meeting, Irwin puts down the two cardboard Gorgonites next to each other. During Larry's presentation they can be seen further apart and when Mr. Mars is describing his vision of smart toys they are further apart still. (00:04:00 - 00:06:15)

Audio problem: When the Commando Elite rip out through the clear plastic 'window' of their packaging, the sound made is that of paper ripping - a different sound to what the plastic being punctured would make.

Visible crew/equipment: When Alan throws his father's broken radio into the box and he turns around to talk to the girl on the ladder, the reflection of a crew member wearing a white T-shirt can be seen in the monitor on the desk as the camera follows Alan. (00:30:40)

Trivia: When Alan is digging through the garbage can looking for the Gorgonites, a toy Mogwai can be seen in it. A little tribute to Joe Dante's 1984 film Gremlins.

Sophie

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
