Originally all the bottle tossing that was done in the film, was NOT scripted but in fact done last minute because the actors wanted to "feel like real bartenders"
Brian and Doug's bartending skills are referred to as "flair bartending". John Bandy, a flair bartender, trained Tom Cruise for the film.
The Jamaica scenes were filmed in and around Port Antonio. Tom Cruise
was married to Mimi Rogers at the time, and it was rumored that they fought off-set constantly.
