* DawsonCasting: In the original, high school student Jill Johnson is played by 27-year-old Carol Kane. It's surprisingly convincing.
* RetroactiveRecognition: In the remake, you may have noticed [[Series/{{Glee}} Quinn]] [[Creator/DiannaAgron Fabray]].
** Also in the remake, [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Agent Coulson]] is Jill's dad.
** Coulson's not the only superhero in the remake, either. Tiffany is Katie Cassidy, aka [[Series/{{Arrow}} the Black Canary]].
** It doesn't end there. Jill's BlackBestFriend Scarlett is played by future ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' star Creator/TessaThompson in her film debut.
