Trivia: This Means War!
- Actor Allusion: At two different parts of the movie, FDR claims to be captain of a cruise ship.
- It's the first reply that justifies the trope: "Permission to come aboard, Captain?"
- Nana's been taking care of FDR after he lost both parents at a young age. Hardly the first time either.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Bane has Aunt May for a mother and is best friends with Captain Kirk. Oh, and they're being hunted by Hugo Stiglitz for some reason.
- Old Shame: For Tom Hardy, who said that he had no plans to ever do a romantic comedy ever again after this.
- Throw It In: The lady's bathroom scene was improv on the part of Reese Witherspoon... except the bit where she leans into the mirror and says "Has that been on my teeth the whole time?" They had filmed an eating scene earlier in the day, and she had a piece of schmutz stuck in one of her front teeth, and her reaction to seeing it was real. They used it in the film anyway.
- What Could Have Been: the original script (written in 1997) was a mix of romantic comedy and a High Concept disaster movie and featured every single monument in New York City getting destroyed. Not surprisingly, almost none of that draft made the final film.
