End credits[edit]

perhaps a mention of the end credits sequence? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tai4ji2x (talkcontribs) 19:19, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Done. Hoof Hearted (talk) 16:44, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
how about a mention of the songs played during the sequence? having artists as politically charged as rage against the machine does seem to have some significance. also, the cee-lo track with eva mendes is also an interesting tidbit, no? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tai4ji2x (talkcontribs) 04:39, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Top 10 Lists[edit]

Will there be a section added for where it placed in critic's top movie lists? It was #1 for Ben Mankiewicz of Turner Classic Movies, used to be on At The Movies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.100.144.86 (talk) 03:30, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Uncredited Cameos[edit]

I think Grant Shaud may be another to add to the list. The actor seated next to NYPD union rep "Bob" (Michael Delaney) in the investor-meeting-turned-gunfight sure does look like him. Can anyone else confirm it? --69.117.130.77 (talk) 16:59, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Cultural References[edit]

Should we start another section of the page called "Pop Culture References" or "Meme References" or "Running Jokes". Part of the comedy of the movie is the constant references to other things, such as the Captain's frequent quotes of TLC (band) lyrics of which he seems totally unaware - as when he says "Don't go chasing waterfalls". Or is that just considered advertising for the band, just as the Captain working for Bed, Bath, and Beyond is obviously corporate advertising? --Bill.albing (talk) 16:41, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Sounds a little trivia-ish. I'd say no. Hoof Hearted (talk) 19:55, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

New Standards Needed[edit]

When pictures like this are given "generally positive reviews" by Rotten Tomatoes, eithert this shouldn't be used as a resource, or today's reviewers are generally utterly incompetant. In either case for a reader to read that a picture such as this is any good based on conglomorate reviews is certainly misleading.

Also, standards for what's considered a "hit" should be reconsidered. When most of a film's gross comes in the first weekend, and then disappears just a few weeks later, for cable, and rental release, can no longer be considered a "hit", in terms of any hit release before the year 2000. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.125.235.115 (talk) 02:42, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Soundtrack - uncredited music[edit]

The list of credits for this movie, both on the DVD version and on IMDB, is considerable but incomplete. For example, an excerpt from "Moonlight in Glory" (Brian Eno/David Byrne's album 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts') can be heard around halfway through the movie. There may be more. There's no soundtrack listing for the movie in this article, and anyway I wouldn't know how to include a mention of this uncredited excerpt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.66.40.110 (talk) 05:36, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
