* CaliforniaDoubling: The story is set in Ridgefield, Connecticut - indeed Glen works on Wall Street "in the city," presumably in Manhattan - but was filmed in California.
* {{Defictionalization}}: A few bands have taken up the challenge of writing a song called "I Got Punched In The Nose For Sticking My Face In Other Peoples Business," the most popular one being from the [[{{Emo}} emo]] band Boys Night Out. The closest there's ever been to a country song by that title is an indie folk track by The Man Who Loves You.
* 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.
