The Usual Suspects Trivia

These trivia from Reddit and other sources can be used as questions with answers in quizzes or games.

  1. Everyone is cracking up in the lineup scene because Benicio del Toro ripped a nasty fart. Director Bryan Singer left it in the movie because he thought it showed a camaraderie between the felons

  2. When Redfoot flicks his cigarette into the face of McManus, it was originally intended to hit his chest, so McManus' reaction is actually Stephen Baldwin's real unscripted reaction, which Bryan Singer decided to keep in the movie.

  3. Due to Benicio Del Toro's unusual choice of accent, the rest of the cast were encouraged to adlib reactions.

  4. [In case you thought it was a language mistake] In The Usual Suspects (1995), early in the movie the Hungarian burn victim in the hospital name drops "Keyser SHoze". That's because the letter "S" in Hungarian, is pronounced -sh, while "SZ" is -s.
