This is the only film by Martin Scorsese to be released on a Friday the 13th.
The closing credits are displayed over a moving shot of Paul's office, during which more and more employees show up for work. When the camera passes Paul's desk again, he has disappeared.
When Paul finally gets in to the club to meet with Kiki, the band that is playing when Paul is forced into getting a mohawk is 'The Bad Brains' with a song called 'Pay to Cum'.
Another treat is Kiki's leather-clad boyfriend Horst who is none other than star of stage and screen Will Patton
. His credits include "Romeo is Bleeding" and "No Way Out."
