Trivia

Harvey Keitel reprising his role in 2014, in a series of commercials for the UK insurance company "Direct Line", wasn't to everyone's liking as the following extract from User Reviews reads: "I've kind of lost respect for him. The Wolf was a mysterious character, and it's been cheapened". Obviously, this movie came twenty years before the Direct Line commercials, so Keitel had also aged somewhat, yet gracefully. The commercials are still on television in the UK, in fact a woman in the latest one says, "Here's your coffee, Mr. Wolf. Lots of cream, lots of sugar", a nod to how Keitel replied to Jimmie Dimmick (Quentin Tarantino) in this movie. Winston Wolfe also carried the takeaway paper cup, as opposed to holding a china cup, while standing still, making for a highly amusing scene. See more »

Goofs

(at around 2h 10 mins) When they are at Monster Joe's used auto parts, The Wolf is walking to his car, and there are 4 vehicles parked on the left - a truck, a yellow VW bug, a 2nd truck, and another car. But when The Wolf gets in his car and jets off, the 2 vehicles behind the VW are replaced by 2 other vehicles parked further away. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Pumpkin: Forget it. Too risky. I'm through doing that shit.
Yolanda: You always say that. That same thing every time, "I'm through, never again, too dangerous".
Pumpkin: I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
Yolanda: But you forget about it in a day or two.
Pumpkin: Yeah, well the days of me forgetting are over, and the days of me remembering have just begun.

Crazy Credits

The coffee shop manager in the robbery scene at the end is credited as "Coffee Shop" because he is cut off as he speaks: "I am not a hero, I'm just a coffee shop--" See more »

Alternate Versions

In the United Arab Emirates, a completely different version of the film was released theatrically. The film was re-edited so that each story was told without intercutting. The Vincent Vega/Jules Winnfield story and the Bonnie Situation were first, then the story concerning Vincent Vega and Marcellus Wallace's wife was told, and finally the Gold Watch story was told. The film ended with Butch and Fabian riding off on the chopper. See more »

The Movie that redefined a genre
8 December 2004 | by cooplanderSee all my reviews

Viewers are taken on a ride through three different stories that entertwine together around the world of Marcellus Wallace. Quentin Tarantino proves that he is the master of witty dialogue and a fast plot that doesn't allow the viewer a moment of boredom or rest. From the story of two hit-man on a job, to a fixed boxing match to a date between a hit-man and the wife of a mob boss. There was definitely a lot of care into the writing of the script, as everything no matter the order it is in, fits with the story. Many mysteries have been left such as what is inside of the briefcase and why Marcellus Wallace has a band-aid on the back of his neck, which may be connected. The movie redefined the action genre and reinvigorated the careers of both John Travolta and Bruce Willis. This movie is required viewing for any fan of film.
