Trivia: (Credits)
To obtain a PG-13 rating, the film had to be cut and Fox used this version not only for the cinema release but also for the home media release. Other countries used this master, too, e.g. Great Britain and Australia. Altogether there is only about ten seconds missing in the PG-13 version.

The opening scene was filmed in this parking garage in Nice, France (45 Rue Sainte-Phillipe).
