* CreatorBacklash: A minor case. While Coby and Iris Recht, who wrote all the film's music and songs along with the original storyline, didn't ''completely'' hate the end result, it was pretty far removed from what they originally intended. The duo only had a very limited grasp of English, and so didn't realize just what bizarre directions Golan was taking the film in until they saw an assembly cut.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The movie is shot in Berlin, obviously so, but pretends really, really hard to be set in various places on the American east and west coast. Those familiar with the city might recognize the concert venue in the opening scenes as the Internationales Congress Centrum, a futuristic-looking conference centre located in the borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf.

* CutSong: The movie was originally to open with a song, "Creation," sung by Mr. Topps and Mr. Boogalow and set in the Garden of Eden where Alphie was created. The sequence makes the film's ending make a lot more sense, as in the finished film Mr. Topps only shows up in the final scene and creates a literal DeusExMachina. While the song was filmed, it was cut due to the disastrous nature of the shoot which included multiple injuries and a set so small none of the choreography worked.

* NonSingingVoice: Catherine Mary Stewart auditioned to be one of the dancers, but Coby Recht immediately saw her in the line up and insisted to director Menahem Golan that she was perfect for Bibi. Unfortunately, Recht discovered Stewart was not able to actually sing, and he lied to Golan to get her hired anyway. Eventually Golan learned the truth and while Stewart worked with a vocal coach who thought she was capable of taking the part, the producers ended up deciding to fly out professional singer Mary Hylan to sing all of Bibi's songs, which Stewart would later lip sync to for the filming.
