Trivia

In the scene where Mel Gibson waxes his legs in his bathroom, he actually did wax his legs, and it did not hurt him nearly as much as it hurt him in the movie. He kept taunting all the women on set, saying "come on, this doesn't hurt at at all!"
The Nike representatives are in fact the real Nike ad representatives and not actresses.

The film cast includes three Oscar winners: Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt, Marisa Tomei; and two Oscar nominees: Alan Alda, Valerie Perrine.

In the bathroom scene, when Nick falls into the bathtub and nearly electrocutes himself, there's Swedish ad-poster on the wall. The text ("Härligt efter rakning") means "Wonderful after shaving".
When Nick is in the lunchroom receiving feedback regarding his advice to the coworker moving to Israel, the woman says "I don't think it was you got it, see you next Tuesday". See you next Tuesday is a euphemism for vagina. C.U.... It could be a complete coincidence but as their conversation ends Nick moves his head to reveal a portrait that resembles the female anatomy.
