Director Peter Farrelly was and is a huge fan of the band, Orpheus, whose 1968 hit single "Can't Find The Time" is covered by 'Hootie & The Blowfish' for the movie's soundtrack. According to an interview which appeared in the Milford Daily News, while in college, Farrelly even dated an Orpheus member's ex-wife who was the inspiration for Amy Smart's character in the film, Outside Providence (1999).

The length of the white picket fence, between Charlie's house and his rude neighbors, changes several times throughout the movie. Sometimes it appears to reach close to the road, other times it is more flush with the houses. See more »
Funniest movie I have seen in a long time, wish I had seen it much earlier. I thought I had grown tired of Jim Carrey movies. He seemed like the same character in just about every film. True enough, I can still see elements of the same kind of character in this film, but I think the story is a good one. Renee Zellwegger is lovely and sexy. There were so many funny moments in this movie, from when Jim Carrey nurses on the lovely young mother to the very end when the three boys leave us with "Thank you for watching our **** movie!" I actually got all of my friends to watch this movie with me because I was so excited about it and it's already almost 7 years old. Who knew? I guess that just goes to show that you can't judge an actor or a movie until you've seen it.
