* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/{{Matilda}} Bruce Bogtrotter]] is grabbing a totally different kind of cake in this movie.
** Glenn Goulia went on to become a [[Series/StargateSG1 starship captain]].
** Ellen Albertini Dow (Rosie) is known for bit parts. She's a drama instructor and surprisingly - for a woman playing an older woman back in this 1998 movie - in 2014 turned 101 years old, and [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0016687/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 still adding to her list of roles]].
* PlayingAgainstType: Up to ''The Wedding Singer'', most of Sandler's roles had been [[ManChild immature guys]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold who eventually revealed a more sensitive side]]. This was the first role of his to be a fairly straightforward nice-guy-with-underdog-tones, and that eventually became his new type.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Lampshaded; Glenn brags about buying a CD player for around $1000, and Julia promptly asks to play a record on it.
