According to Rating the Movies, "the movie was filmed mostly at Florida's Hialeah racetrack". The Hialeah Race Course is located in south Florida and the picture was shot there during the track's off-season. Racing was also conducted at nearby Calder Race Course, and Dreyfuss was spotted on several occasions, presumably researching his role as Trotter. Although this classic track was closed for many years, the facility was reopened in 2009 offering only Quarter Horse racing as opposed to the Thoroughbred Racing that Hialeah traditionally offered.

Richard Dreyfuss is a funny little actor, I have seen most of his films.. and this one was great. He is hilarious and so is Jennifer Tilly as the millionaire's girlfriend. Would recommend this movie to anyone whose life sucks, especially on a bad day. Good to watch with a crowd too.
