Trivia

Matt Dillon's outing of his teacher in his acceptance speech is based upon Tom Hanks' real-life acceptance speech at The 66th Annual Academy Awards (1994) for his Oscar for Philadelphia (1993), in which he thanked a gay teacher.
The Oscar statuette used in the film is Kevin Kline's. He won it in 1988 for Best Supporting Actor in A Fish Called Wanda (1988).
The high school scenes were mostly shot at Pompton Lakes High School, yet the school and town receive no mention in the closing credits. This is due to the School's Superintendent forgetting to sign the waiver allowing the school's name to be placed in the credits.
Joan Cusack plays Matt Dillon's former high school teacher in this movie, even though she is only two years older then he is and they played classmates and age contemporaries in My Bodyguard (1980). She states she was a student teacher when she helped him in school, which could explain how they could be close in age.
The suit Matt Dillon wears to the Academy Awards is based on the suit Brad Pitt wore at The 68th Annual Academy Awards (1996).
Elizabeth Hurley was considered for the role of Sonya.
