* EnforcedMethodActing: Of the unintentional variety. Arguably the funniest moment in the movie is when Patches hits Justin in the head with a wrench. However the rubber wrenches were still pretty hard and it actually cut Justin Long. His initial reaction is quite genuine. The ensuing rolling around and yelling "oh my god" was embellished as he went with it. They subsequently used softer foam rubber wrenches.

* PlayingAgainstType: Jason Bateman's role is one of his few that is not an uptight StraightMan. Also, Ben Stiller's role as White Goodman is a change from his usual roles as a hapless everyman ButtMonkey, although he plays a similar fitness-obsessed villain in ''{{Heavyweights}}''.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Not to the film, which was given a wide release in theatres and on home media-- but to the soundtrack, which was never given an official release and features Theodore Shapiro's excellently breezy score (as well as the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome ass-kicking "Face Off"]], composed by TomMorello).
