- Actor Allusion:
Max: If I keep making this face *makes silly face* will it be stuck that way?Fletcher: Uh-uh, in fact some people make a good living that way.
- Fake American: British Cary Elwes as Jerry does a pretty convincing American accent.
- Just like some other Robin Hoods.
- Deleted Scene: The deleted scene shows Fletcher in court, managing to convince an entire jury that a thug who robbed an old man and assaulted a female officer, was the real victim in the whole fiasco. The scene was cut likely because the filmmakers feared it would make Fletcher too unlikable, though some have pointed out that we actually get to see how great of a lawyer he actually is, rather than just hear about it.
- In Memoriam: The film was dedicated to Jason Bernard, who played Judge Marshall Stevens. Bernard died of a heart attack shortly after filming had finished.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: Samantha Cole is, to be perfectly honest, a complete and total bitch. Jennifer Tilly, on the other hand, is much more pleasant and friendly in real life.
- Uncredited Role: Judd Apatow was an uncredited script doctor for the screenplay.
- What Could Have Been: Steve Martin and Hugh Grant were both considered for the lead role.
