In this film Danny Aiello plays the Italian 'criminal' Tommy Five-Tone . This could be seen as an in-joke at The Godfather: Part II (1974) where Danny Aiello's character, one of the Rosato brothers, attempts to murder Frankie Pentanglis, a.k.a. Frankie Five-Angels.

Want to read more about the making of the movie?
Pick up a copy of co-star Richard E. Grant's book "With Nails: the film diaries of Richard E Grant". There's a section about Bruce Willis and Hudson Hawk.
What are the differences between the British BBFC 15 Version and the Uncensored Version?
All British versions are missing a brief close-up scene showing Hawk breaking into a room, probably due to the fear of imitation. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
