- First off, CBS Blu Ray, I am disappoint. Seriously, the only special feature on this disc is the theatrical trailer, when I distinctly remember the DVD I rented before having at least a director's commentary, if not a featurette or two. They didn't even hide a commentary track under the audio options. Would it have been that hard to copy the special features from the earlier DVD release? I mean, the main reason I got a BD-rom is because all the good special features are on blu-ray nowadays. Way to drop the ball, guys.
- Any time Curtis Armstrong's character, Charles, was on screen, I was filled with the desire to make Dan Vs. dubs. It didn't help that a lot of his lines were things that Dan would say (i.e. "I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years! I'm no dummy!")
- I wasn't sure whether to save this for another Surprise Crochet post or not, but since I have no idea when I'll be making another of those, and since it isn't exactly flattering, I'll just post about it here. Lane's neighbor, Ricky Smith, is twice defined as a typical loser nerd type because he crochets (among other things). And for Christmas, he crochets a picture frame (for a picture of himself) for Monique, the foreign exchange student his mother is trying to hook him up with.
- I don't remember whether or not I knew the first time I watched this movie that David Ogden Stiers was Lane (John Cusack)'s dad, but it surprised me this time. Though that's because I mostly know him from his voice acting. He definitely did not look the way I pictured him.
