- Dawson Casting: Nobody in this movie (except maybe Katy and Tom) passes for college-aged. Justified in that half the campus are career students going well into their 20s. Jeremy Piven's character is at least said to be in his seventh year of college.
- Technology Marches On: The computers in the computer lab are all taken down when Tom accidentally trips on a power cord. They have no automatic backup as modern word processors do to avoid just this sort of accident.
- Vindicated by Cable: Not a huge hit when released - the ad campaign was forgettable - the movie picked up a following thanks to repeated airings on Comedy Central and some of the cast - Piven and Spade especially - becoming known actors.
