Were the guys that ran their boats in the movie compensated for their time and expense?

Gino -
Don't know you personally, but I wish I had known you were there. I would have loved to say Hi! and shake your hand.
Glad you are feeling better.

Oh, well thats what I say just makes the original that much better!!! Good for Don Johnson and the rest of the original crew. Those shows are timeless for us who do powerboat.

If Micheal Cimino's Heaven's Gate could not kill United Artists, doubt Miami Vice will cause much damage to Universal.

Heaven's Gate (1980) trivia:
Quote:
At one point during filming, Michael Cimino decided that the spacing of the buildings on one of the sets didn't look right, despite it having been built to his exact specifications. He ordered both sides of the street razed and rebuilt at a cost of $1.2 million over the objections of his crew (who reasoned that it would be easier to knock down one side of the street and rebuild it twice as far away, for half the cost).

There was a very dissapointing article in the Miami Herald yesterday about the film. Seems like Mann didn't want to stay true to the show. Rather he wanted to show Miami 20 years later and how it has grown, etc., etc., blah, blah, blah....I could have gone to the after party last night on the Beach but decided not to waste my time, I was so pissed ......I am passing on the movie; maybe watch it on DVD if I hear the boat scenes are back......I can watch any number of Miami drugs/corruption/gang movie whenever I want...pick any, there are numerous....this movie definitely is NOT Miami Vice......
