Billy Crystal, a notoriously die hard New York Yankees fan, wears a New York Mets cap in the film. As explained by Crystal in the DVD Commentary, he did this because the New York Mets had made a major contribution and helped out on his annual Comic Relief charity. See more »
When Mitch is talking to his wife on the plane, an extra in the background can be seen performing the same action twice in two different shots. The extra moves from his seat in the right of the screen to the left (implying he is going somewhere), and then it quickly cuts to Mitch, then back to wife and the same extra is getting up from his seat and performing the same action all over again.

This is one that I think every guy should see at least once. I could really relate to the character of Mitch's questioning his job, and wondering what he should be doing with his life. I thought the movie frankly starts out with a rather serious mood, relaxed by the characters joking about their situations, but I liked that a lot. It makes you think about how heavy the responsibility of providing for a family really can be. The humor is totally great in this film as well. Crystal especially had me laughing all the time. And as others have said, it kind of surprises you how the story gets pretty emotional down the stretch. Almost cried, but not quite. I just watched it for the first time last weekend, gave it a 10, and look forward to watching it many times in the future.
