Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • John Travolta was paid $3.5 million for this film.
  • CAMEO('Ernest 'Chili Palmer): Elmore Leonard friend, namesake of the main character, as one of Ray Barboni's friends.
  • Michael Keaton, 'Bruce Willis (I)', Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Dustin Hoffman all turned down the role of Chili Palmer. While Danny DeVito was Barry Sonnenfeld's first choice for the role of Chilli Palmer because of his natural charisma, he could not fit it into his schedule so he ended up playing the smaller role of Martin Weir instead.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Harry describes the link between Martin Weir and Murray Saffrin as "Martin's personal trainer's shrink". Later, Chili refers to Martin's "trainer's shrink", and Harry replies "shrink's trainer".
