* ActorAllusion: During the film, Dave makes up a story of falling in love at first sight with a woman who was half American and half Polynesian. Kevin Kline's real life wife, Phoebe Cates, is herself half American and half Polynesian.
* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: Although they don't share any scenes in this film, Charles Grodin (Murray Blum) and Bonnie Hunt (The White House Tour Guide) previously starred together as George and Alice Newton in ''Film/{{Beethoven}}''. Amusingly, producer-director Ivan Reitman also worked on ''Beethoven'' as executive producer.
* RecycledSet: The sets from this movie were so good they've been reused many times, most notably in ''Film/IndependenceDay''.
