Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1)
Jennifer Love Hewitt broke a finger while filming the 'flopper dive' scene.
The most expensive shot in the movie was when Jennifer Love Hewitt leaned against the car to talk to Ray Liotta near the end of the movie. Because it was cold on set, she had a white sweatshirt around her waist that was in the shot, and it had to be digitally taken out.
The card handling that Jennifer Love Hewitt does in the restaurant (saying it relaxes her) was taught to her by stage magician Ricky Jay. She actually learned more tricks than that, but was unable to do them in the movie because she broke her finger.
In the DVD commentary, director David Mirkin states that being a native New Yorker, Sigourney Weaver did not know how to drive, which made her extremely nervous during her driving scenes in the film.
Despite Jennifer Love Hewitt's character Page Conners being portrayed as a smoker, she once stated in a Rolling Stone interview that she abhors the habit and finds smokers disgusting.
Hewitt's line, "There is only one man," is a reference to Chasing Amy (1997), which also starred Jason Lee.
Back when the movie was supposed to start filming in 1997 actress Alicia Silverstone was originally cast in the role of Page and Doug Liman (the director of Go (1999) and Swingers (1996)) was set to direct, but as time passed Jennifer Love Hewitt ended up playing Page and David Mirkin (who also directed Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997)) took over directing duties.
The original casting choices were Jennifer Aniston, to play Page Conners, and Cher, to play Max Conners.
Norman Reedus turned down the role of Jack Withrowe.
Jennifer Love Hewitt never actually drove in any of the car scenes in the movie.
It was Sigourney Weaver's idea to dress Nora Dunn's character up like in Rebecca (1940).
The film was originally entitled "The Breakers", after the swank Palm Beach, Florida resort. The company passed on the rights to include their name as the title of the movie, and removed all clear association with the production - except that they allowed MGM to film on the hotel's premises.
Considered to be an updated version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988).

In one scene, Ray Liotta's character Dean Cumanno is working in his office when an employee enters to tell him they have three new Toyota Camrys and that the parts from them will profit the business at least $100,000. In 2001 - the year of the movie's release - the Toyota Camry's most expensive trim cost $26,225. Three of them would total only $78,675, meaning the profit from selling the parts would not be close to $100,000.
