    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Check out the scene where Tubbs is on the bridge waiting to pay the ransom. Right before the boat arrives, he turns and walks away from the side of the bridge, then turns around and walks back. Pay particular attention to the lady with the fishing rod and what she does with the reel. The film is simply played in reverse when Tubbs walks back to the side of the bridge.

      • When Jimmy's plane is in the hangar, the engines have three propeller blades. On the runway in Colombia, the engines have two propeller blades.
