Trivia / The Ref

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: B.D. Wong has a brief appearance as Lloyd and Caroline's therapist Dr. Wong, and J. K. Simmons is the guy Jesse is blackmailing.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Watched a cartoon? You've heard Robert Ridgely, who plays Bob (the mayor, or similar figure).
  • Technology Marches On: Christmas dinner can't be cancelled because it's 1994 and the extended family is already on the road. Starting about 5-6 years later cell phones would really take off and Connie and Lloyd's brother would have presumably gotten a call and a convincing lie to stop them from coming over, averting most of the movie.
