Tequila Sunrise

Visible crew/equipment: When Mel Gibson is getting his red boat ready to put in the water, his friend comes out of his house to talk to him. You can see the camera crew reflected in his friend's sunglasses.

Continuity mistake: When Mel Gibson is unwrapping the tarpaulin from his boat, there is less rope shown tied round it in early shots than there is in later ones.

Continuity mistake: When Kurt Russell and Michelle are having dinner in her restaurant, Michelle goes over to her counter to find an envelope with her name on it that is smeared from the rain leaking through the roof. Later she is shown opening that envelope and the writing is completely different, the name is positioned differently, and the name is smeared 3 times worse than before.

Trivia: The hot tub used in the love scene was constructed of untreated wood and the water wasn't chlorinated. Michelle Pfeiffer, her double, and Mel Gibson suffered splinters and rashes during filming. Michelle lost time off the set as she recovered from her rash.

Nick Frescia: Let's not talk about my business, or his business or your business.
Jo Ann: That leaves us nothing to talk about.
Nick Frescia: Let's eat.

Jo Ann: Mr. McKussic, it seems, has been engaged in his business for purely romantic reasons, whilst you have been engaged in romance for purely business reasons.
Nick Frescia: I'm not sure I understand.
Jo Ann: A little vague for you?
Nick Frescia: A little.
Jo Ann: Well, then, let me spell it out for you: you want to fuck your friend, then fuck him, not me.

Nick Frescia: How's our friend?
Woody, Harbor Patrol Officer: Fine.
Nick Frescia: Fine?
Woody, Harbor Patrol Officer: Aside from a concussion, powder burns, and being generally pissed off, yeah.

More quotes from Tequila Sunrise


Question: When Nick goes to the restaurant when it is closed for the day and night, and Nick has tried to explain everything to Joanna, then she has to answer the phone, why does the camera zoom in on a pair of sunglasses at the far end of the bar?

Chosen answer: It's not the sunglasses. It's the matches. Nick is acting as though he is coming closer to Joanna to get a pack of matches, which she then notices he already has. She realises that he is trying to eavesdrop on her conversation, and although she was previously buying his apology her demeanor changes drastically once she is finished with the phone call.
