Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Kelly Preston and Oliver James did all of their singing in the movie.
When Henry calls Libby to tell her Daphne has been out all day with a boy in a band (Ian), Libby says, Lemme guess, he's a drummer? In reality, Oliver James, who plays Ian, is a drummer.
Anna Chancellor and Christina Cole who play mother and daughter in this movie both played Caroline Bingley. Anna in Pride and Prejudice (1995) with Colin Firth (who is also in this movie) and Christina in Lost in Austen (2008).
When Henry Dashwood is looking through the photo album of Daphne's childhood, there are actual pictures of Amanda Bynes when she was younger.
Amanda Bynes said in the commentary that it took three weeks to put braces on her for the short scene of Daphne's 15th birthday, in which case the braces aren't even noticeable.
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.
This movie premiered on Amanda Bynes 17th birthday.
