Trivia

Some scenes differ slightly from those in the trailer:
  • The line "You can't tell the truth, you idiot" from the trailer has "asshole" instead of "idiot" in the movie.


  • The text of the Jaguar ad reads "for men who want special attention" in the trailer and "for men who want hand jobs" in the movie.

The advertising blurb for United Airlines went: "Your fear of flying may be valid. There are always plenty of plane crashes and people die like crazy. But you should also know that more people arrive at their destinations alive on our flights than on many others. So, if you have to fly, fly us. UNITED. Most of our passengers get there alive".

The advertisements for Porsche, Jaguar and Volvo cars read: "PORSCHE. It's a little too small to get laid in. But you get laid the minute you get out" and "JAGUAR. Sleek and Smart. For men who'd like hand jobs from beautiful women they hardly know" and "Buy Volvos. They're boxy but they're good. We know they're not sexy. This is not a smart time to be sexy anyway, with so many diseases around. Be safe instead of sexy. VOLVO. Boxy, but Good".
