Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The test screenings showed that the audience had trouble figuring out whether it was a comedy or a teen drama. Directors Kyle Rankin and Efram Potelle and Miramax were fighting towards the end of post production on what genre it should be. The directors felt it should be a teen drama, Miramax thought it should be a comedy (because it was a marketing genre). Rankin and Potelle eventually gave in and cut it as a comedy.
  • Liv Tyler was offered the role of Tabby but passed. Jane Kaczmarek was offered the role of Eve at Miramax's insistence - over the objections of the directors - but passed and was replaced by the director's choice for the role: Kathleen Quinlan.
  • Christopher McDonald was originally cast in the role of Abe, but the role was recast (due to a scheduling conflict) and given to William Sadler the day before Abe's first scene was to be shot. McDonald was shown on "Project Greenlight 2" (2003) coming to the set for a wardrobe fitting mere hours before he was replaced.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Kelly is talking to Miner just before the wedding starts, the epaulet on his jacket goes from being untucked to tucked under the collar even though both of his hands are on the bicycle.
