- Box Office Bomb
- Executive Meddling: Oh, so much. Viewing the deleted scenes and how scenes were supposed to be structured on the DVD makes one pine for What Could Have Been.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: John Turturro as Monkeybone.
- Star-Derailing Role: Bridget Fonda. Following this movie and Kiss of the Dragon later that year in 2001, she pretty much retired acting to become a full-time wife and mother.
- What Could Have Been:
- Nicolas Cage and Christopher Walken were originally considered for the roles of Stu Miley and Death.
- Ben Stiller was originally considered to voice Monkeybone, but had to step down to complications with Mystery Men.
- Stephen King was originally going to play himself, but didn't show up on the day his scene was set to be filmed and was replaced with a look-alike.
