* TechnologyMarchesOn: Banky's massive duffle bag of porno magazines was already overkill, but in an age where he could just as easily access more porn that he could possibly see on his cell phone, it seems completely unnecessary.

* WriteWhatYouKnow: The film's story is largely based on Kevin Smith's relationship with Joey Lauren Adams, who plays Alyssa. Although he later pointed out that, while Adams was more sexually experienced than him, it was nowhere near as devious as Alyssa's and that he was more jealous that she had spent most of her youth traveling the world while he had spent most of his life in New Jersey.

** The film was originally in development at Creator/{{Miramax}} on a budget of $3,000,000, but only on the condition that Smith cast John Steward, Drew Barrymore and David Schwimmer in the leads. Smith, who not only thought those choices were terrible, was dead-set on casting his friends, so instead he filmed it independently for a huge fraction on the budget and gave the studio first dibs on distribution.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The movie was apparently [[AwardSnub only two votes away]] from an Acadamy Award nomination for "Best Original Screenplay." One can only wonder what this would have done from both the film and Kevin Smith's reputation.
