* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Not to the film, which was given a wide release in theatres and on home media-- but to the soundtrack, which was never given an official release and features Theodore Shapiro's excellently breezy score (as well as the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome ass-kicking "Face Off"]], composed by [[Music/RageAgainstTheMachine Tom Morello]]).
* PlayingAgainstType: Jason Bateman's role is one of his few that is not an uptight StraightMan. Also, Ben Stiller's role as White Goodman is a change from his usual roles as a hapless everyman ButtMonkey, although he plays a similar fitness-obsessed villain in ''Film/{{Heavyweights}}''.
* TheDanza: Justin Long as Justin Redman
