** The orignal script did not include the romantic subplot between AJ and Grace, and instead had more emphasis on Truman. It was later added after the success of ''Film/{{Titantic}}'' with teenage girls.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The New York City scenes at the beginning were actually filmed in the Spring Street Financial District of Los Angeles. They actually manage to cover this up seamlessly for the most part, except for one shot of a guy in his car where you can see palm trees in the background.

* CreatorsApathy: According to Creator/BenAffleck on the DVD commentary:
--> I asked Creator/{{Michael|Bay}} why it was easier to train oil drillers to become astronauts than it was to train astronauts to become oil drillers and he told me to shut to the fuck up. So, that was the end of that talk.
** Regarding the line of "they don't know jack about drilling":
---> I mean, this is a little bit of a logic stretch, let's face it. "They don't know jack about drilling"? How hard can it be? Aim the drill at the ground and turn it on.
