- AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains: #31 Hero, Erin Brockovich
- AFI's 100 Years... 100 Cheers: #73
- Deleted Scene: Plenty. Mostly just fleshing out sequences in the movie, but one huge chunk eliminates the fact that Erin collapsed from her illness—the cold she has turns out to be meningitis—and is hospitalized for a while.
- Fake American: Brit Albert Finney as Ed Masry.
- Playing Against Type: The abrasive Erin is a complete 180 from the "America's Sweetheart" type roles Julia Roberts is known for. In fact, she nearly wasn't cast because of this, as the director felt she would be inappropriate.
- What Could Have Been: Goldie Hawn and Roseanne Barr were considered for the title role.
