Total Recall

David Cronenberg was set to direct and even wrote a few drafts of the script before Paul Verhoeven took over.

During filming, Sharon Stone complained to Paul Verhoeven that she wasn't sure whether her character really was married to Doug.

Johnnycab whistles the Norwegian national anthem.

During Quaid's Rekall orientation, a monitor momentarily shows an illustration of a green Martian from Edgar Rice Burrough's Martian novels.

When Quaid is being shown the monitor in the implant room, some of the drawings scrolling by are concept drawings of the reactor on Mars.

Doug Quaid signs into the hotel as "Brubaker", the name of the captain from Capricorn One (1978), a movie about a faked trip to Mars.

References to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" include the annoyingly polite robot (Johnnycab), wrapping a towel around your head to avoid being found, and the triple-breasted whore.
