    stars  Writer Joe Eszterhas and producer Irwin Winkler walked off the picture after failing to reach agreement with director Paul Verhoeven over how the film should be tackled. Verhoeven promptly hired Total Recall (1990) writer Gary Goldman to come up with some new scenes, most of which beefed up Michael Douglas's character and made him less wimpy. These changes were largely made at the behest of Douglas. It was during this stage that Verhoeven realized his changes weren't going to work so he had to publicly make up with Eszterhas. Problems reoccurred later when Eszterhas wanted to make more changes to appease the gay and lesbian communities. Verhoeven point blank refused to incorporate these changes.

    stars  The dresses that Sharon Stone wears throughout the film were designed to match, in the same order, the dresses that Kim Novak wears in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958).
    stars  Michael Douglas (a former race-car driver) did most of his own stunt driving in the film.
