Puns bring joy.

Heh. So I knew that Die Hard With A Vengeance (1995) is a fun, clever action film, and (like the other Die Hard films) has fun, clever music by the late Michael Kamen; and I knew that on Die Hard With A Vengeance, a time crunch plus disagreements between Kamen and director John McTiernan over the direction of the music meant that the third film's score simply couldn't be finished in time, so some of With A Vengeance's score is re-recorded or simply tracked-in music from the first two films.

I didn't know until now that for the scene where Bruce Willis is in an aqueduct tunnel fleeing a flood of water, that the music tracked in was from a bit of the first film's score that quoted "Singin' In the Rain."

I kind of hope that the re-use of that for that was completely intentional.
