This film opened during war with Iraq which made Warner Bros. change the poster art for the film. Because the original artwork showed Amanda Bynes displaying a peace symbol, the artwork was changed so that the peace symbol was airbrushed out. The studio did not want anyone to think the artwork was a war protest.
The scene where Lady Dashwood is presenting Daphne Reynolds with a tiara for her coming out party was filmed after they had finished producing the movie. Amanda Bynes was in America and had already dyed her hair a dark brown. Eileen Atkins was in London.
