* ActorAllusion: When E.B. asks David Hasselhoff why he's not surprised by a talking rabbit, he replies with "My best friend is [[Series/KnightRider a talking car]]."
* DawsonCasting: Marsden was 38 when the film was made, but is playing someone in his early 20s.
** Maybe; Fred's age is never stated though it's implied to be closer to 30 (and to be fair, James Marsden does not look 38).
* HeyItsThatGuy[=/=]HeyItsThatVoice: [[GetHimToTHeGreek Aldous Snow]] is E. B., Series/{{House}} is his dad, Fred is [[strike:[[Film/{{X-Men}} Cyclops]]]] [[{{Enchanted}} Prince Edward]] and Sam is [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Penny]] & [[WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers Brandy Harrington]].
** Bonnie O'Hare, Fred's mother, is [[Film/TheFlintstones Wilma Flinstone]]. And the father, Henry, is played by [[Film/OfficeSpace Bill Lumbergh]].
** Carlos and Phil are, of course, Creator/HankAzaria.
