Producer Joel Silver and star Bruce Willis chose director Michael Lehmann to helm the picture to blend all the elements of the film. Although Lehmann had previously directed only two feature films, his directorial debut with a dark comedy that attained cult status entitled Heathers (1988) had caught the attention of both star and producer. Lehmann was enthusiastic about tackling the project: "I was a Bruce Willis fan and it was easy to envision Bruce in the role. I also felt that there was something I could contribute to the film. Although the material was very accessible, there was room for some funny little twists and turns that would lift it above the standard action-adventure comedy. Most of all, it was very clear from the script that if it was done right, the movie would be a lot of fun to watch. What more can you ask from a movie?". See more »

Entire subplot of Eddie's dead pet monkey Little Eddie. Eddie puts a photo of the monkey on Kaplan's head and throws him off the castle; the photo is still visible in the final cut just as he goes over the cliff on the limo. See more »
A movie that I've never understood the critics' response against. Yes, it's primarily a Bruce Willis ego-trip. Who cares? It's a _fun_ Bruce Willis ego-trip. He smirks, smartmouths, struts, sings, and strides through every scene. But he still doesn't manage to steal the thunder of Danny Aiello, James Coburn and his band of covert agents, and Sandra Bernhard and Richard Grant in a truly bizarre series of sequences as eccentric (to put it mildly) billionaires. Andie MacDowell doesn't make much of a romantic lead, but even she gets a goofball sequence when she starts speaking in Dolphin-ish.
