Mighty Aphrodite (1995) Poster

Trivia

In a 2005 interview with "Vanity Fair", Woody Allen stated that even after their bitter and much-publicized breakup, he considered casting Mia Farrow as his wife Amanda, saying that he believed she would be the best actress for the role. In response to this, his casting director Juliet Taylor replied, "What, are you nuts?"
According to Mira Sorvino, after a month of filming, Woody Allen wanted her to change the high-pitched voice she was using for her character but she refused.
Mira Sorvino auditioned for the part in New York and didn't get it. Woody Allen then went to London to audition some British actresses, and Sorvino showed up again, this time in full costume, and got the part on her second try.
Olympia Dukakis only speaks 3 lines and barely appears for 1 minute despite having principle billing on the poster.
One of the only Woody Allen films that differs in its style of credits. Despite the credits being set in the usual Windsor typeface, at the end of the film, they are superimposed on top of the chorus dancing. After the image fades to black, the credits scroll instead of being still.
Cameron Diaz was considered for the role of Linda Ash.
According to the biography The Unruly Life of Woody Allen by Marion Meade, the movie was inspired by Allen's adopted daughter Dylan. He thought that to be so intelligent and charming, he decided, Dylan must have inherited "good genes."
