Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
The film was almost accepted in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, but Noah Baumbach refused to cut 15 minutes as they requested, and the film was ultimately rejected.
According to Noah Baumbach at the Lincoln Center anniversary screening, there was another actor scheduled to play the lead role who dropped out at the last minute, prompting Tri-Mark to tell Baumnbach to "find a star" or they'd cancel the movie. He quickly faxed his good friend Eric Stolz, who was filming Rob Roy (1995) in Scotland, and got him to sign on to the movie even though there was no character written for him. They created the character of Chet together, doing a lot of improvisation, in particular the famous "book club" scene.
