* RealitySubtext: Reese Witherspoon decided to meet with several sorority girls to prepare for the role, not wanting to play a typical airhead. She found most of the girls to be very kind and polite - much as the various people at Harvard discover that Elle is not the AlphaBitch they'd assumed her to be.

* ActorAllusion:
** Subverted. Elle mentions growing up across the street from Aaron Spelling. The first choice for Elle was Tori Spelling, so it would have been one for her.
** In the sequel's opening, the girls look at a picture of Elle with Congresswoman Rudd (played by Sally Field) and say "Those are two kickass women. I like them, I really like them" - referencing Sally Field's Oscar acceptance speech.
* ActorInspiredElement: Reese Witherspoon suggested the one million dog march in the sequel.
* CaliforniaDoubling: Elle and Warner's conversation outside the courtroom was filmed in England, as that's where Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Davis were filming at the time of re-shoots.



** Elle's father also has [[{{Series/Charmed}} three witches for daughters]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The story was originally to take place at the University of Chicago. The university objected to the scene where [[spoiler: Callaghan makes a pass at Elle]] and so filmmakers decided to set it at Harvard instead.
** The movie originally ended at the conclusion of Brooke's trial. The [[spoiler: scene with Warner and the final graduation]] were added in after test audiences complained that [[spoiler: Elle never got revenge on Warner]]. You can notice that Elle's make-up is slightly different outside the courtroom, as result. Also in the [[spoiler: graduation scene]] you'll note that Elle is paler and Emmett has a deeper tan.
** Margot and Serena were only going to be in the opening scene of the sequel, but their roles were expanded as filming went on.
