The guitar model that Milton is trying to balance as he's reaching for the box on the floor is the same guitar model 'Michael J. Fox' used for playing Johnny B. Goode in Back to the Future (1985). See more »
During the opening shots of Doug riding around NYC in a limo, he purchases a large stuffed giraffe. The only way it will fit in the limo is standing up through the moon roof.

I watched this movie over the weekend as a refreshment from seeing it as a late movie one Saturday and I still enjoy it. It is quite a charming little romance comedy about Doug Ireland, a concierge who is absorbed in his work, but can take time out for the attractive but difficult Andy(Gabrielle Anwar). He has big plans for himself, and calls on the help of a corrupt businessman for support. Fox is wonderful in this film, playing his most proficient kind of character- the hopeless romantic. The supporting cast is very funny and enjoyable, especially Udo Kier, the uptight manager with a slight hatred for overdoers. This is a very good romantic movie, the kind that is best for a date or an evening out.
