Trivia
According to writer/director Emilio Estevez, the actions of Dwayne (Nick Cannon) after Kennedy's assassination were based on how a young black man furiously threw a chair against the wall when told of Kennedy's being shot.

The scene of Sharon Stone's character cutting her husband's hair (played by William H. Macy) was not in the script. Stone was to pantomime cutting the hair, but she actually snipped his hair. Macy's visibly tense reaction to the haircut was real.

The character Lindsay Lohan portrayed was based on the desk clerk at the motel where Emilio Estevez wrote part of the script.

Quotes
Paul: I've been getting complaints that you're not allowing the kitchen staff to vote today!

Edward Robinson: White folks ain't trying to keep you down. White folks just don't like to be pushed into a corner. They'll come around. You just got to make it look like it was their idea, like they're the ones that thought of it. They need to feel like they're the great emancipators. Like it was theirs to give in the first place. Let'em have it. I mean, if that's all it takes, let them have it.

Miriam: [to her husband] Your, clothes, your hair. They might say 1968, but your attitude is pure 1920.
