* DuelingMovies: Of sorts. It was released the same day as ''Film/BroadcastNews''.
* OldShame: Danny Aiello still doesn't like his role as Johnny, whom he thought was wimpy.
* PlayingGertrude: Olympia Dukakis and Cher play mother and daughter, but are just under 15 years apart in age. Similarly, Feodor Chaliapin Jr. and Vincent Gardenia play father and son but are only 14 years apart in age.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Shanley initially wrote the characters as Irish, but decided to make them Italian to make it less of an AuthorAvatar script.
