Trivia

Fran Drescher took voice lessons to alter the nasal quality of her voice for the part of Joy Miller. When she arrived on set using her new "normal" voice, producers insisted that she revert to her natural trademark one, as it was one of the reasons she was asked to play the part.

Early in development, Fran Drescher planned the movie to be a spin on The King and I (1956), titled "The King And Oy" but legislatively faced the problem that FOX owned the rights. Therefore, she decided to pay homage to Beauty and the Beast (1991) instead.

Most signs in the movie are written in Czech, albeit nonsensically and mostly without the proper diacritics. The banner at the secret resistance meeting says "to unite correct"; the warning signs in the factory read "Danger: Steam"; and the scribbles on the newspaper mean "From our readers' letters". The labor decree that Pochenko draws up is only seen for a split second in one shot, but part of it says "further site updates are hereby postponed".
