* ExecutiveMeddling: A particularly brutal example that saw nearly a fifth of the film left on the cutting room floor. Furthermore, David Nutter was working on a [[{{Recut}} Director's Cut]] that would have reinstated the deleted scenes, only to have it vetoed by the studio. The commentary track gives a lot of detail on just how badly the film was butchered.
* PlayingAgainstType: At this point in her career, Creator/KatieHolmes was best known for playing sweet Tomboy Joey Potter on ''Series/DawsonsCreek''. Here she's playing one of the town "bad kids".
