Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Two real life twins were reunited with their father after seeing him in the scene set in downtown Santa Fe.
  • The money was not available to pay to the two main stars and the director their normal fees. They decided to split a percentage of the gross profits between the three of them and ended up making more than they would have made taking their fees upfront because the film was such a hit.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Hulk Hogan have all revealed in interviews that Schwarzenegger and DeVito were given the option of doing this movie or Suburban Commando; had the two chosen Suburban Commando, Hogan and Christopher Lloyd would have done this movie.
