Although Johnnycab is clearly a robot, he apparently has feelings, as when his taxicab pulls up and Douglas Quaid gets out, Johnnycab says, "The fare is 18 credits, please". Quaid cheekily replies, "Sue me, dickhead!" Johnnycab cab feels insulted as he tries to run Quaid down in his cab, but it crashes and explodes, so Quaid dives for cover. Johnnycab then says, "We hope you enjoyed the ride!" See more »

Doug? Honey, are you all right?
You were dreaming. Doug? Was it about Mars?
Is that better?

Total Recall is a fast paced sci-fi action movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way from beginning to end. For a movie released in the early 1990's, it has some very spectacular make-up effects, visual effects and special effects. This movie is sort of similar to Paul Verhoeven's other films. It is violent, bloody, it has some sexuality/nudity and some profanity. This movie has dark humour. Paul Verhoeven really knows how to use visual and special effects and dark humour whenever he is shooting a scene in his movies. This is one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best films, along with Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Predator. Total Recall is also one Verhoeven's best movies to date. This movie is worth a watch.
