* RewatchBonus: The movie drops a lot of subtle hints about the identity of "Brett" that will usually be missed on a first watch. On a repeat viewing, you can catch a few early clues about his identity, with one friend calling him "Pack Man" (although most will audibly interpret it as "Pac-Man" the first time before they know TheReveal) and Mary also talking about how he lived "up north."

* RewatchBonus: The movie drops a lot of subtle hints about everyone's real agenda that doesn't get picked up until the second time around. Regarding the identity of "Brett" that will usually be missed on a first watch. On a repeat viewing, "Brett", you can catch a few early clues about his identity, clues, with one friend calling him "Pack Man" (although most will audibly interpret it as "Pac-Man" the first time before they know TheReveal) The Reveal) and Mary also talking about how he lived "up north."" With Dom, him mentioning Ted's zipper incident even though he wasn't there and Ted never told him about it is a big tip-off about his hidden agenda that's usually regarded as a random HandWave the first time. He also ducks out of Mary's sight at the hotel, with good reason as we find out later.

* CareerResurrection: Matt Dillon again became a bankable star after this movie.
** Not sure if it's the correct trope or not, but the songs "Buttercup" by the Foundations and "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" by Joe Jackson were both brought back from obscurity by the movie and "Buttercup" in particualr is now a regular on oldies station's playlists.
