- Ensemble Dark Horse: Christopher McDonald as long-suffering Jazz coach Kimball is lauded as one of the few amusing parts of the movie.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Dirty Cop Officer O'Grady is played by Paul Guilfoyle, who would later on portray a more notable police captain.
- Retroactive Recognition:
- Darrell Hammond, who during the time of the film's release was on his first season of Saturday Night Live portrays Chris McCarthy, a fan who gets rejected for being viewed as a bad luck charm.
- Stand-up comedian Jeff Ross plays the victim of the car theft that Officer O'Grady dismisses.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The idea of how obsessive and even crazy sports fans could be could have made for a good satire film instead of making it a kidnapping comedy.
