Terry Crews's character, Lattrell Spencer, mentions he loves the song "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton, as he picks up Marcus Copeland (played by Marlon Wayans) disguised as one of the Wilson sisters, when Lattrell picks him up on the date and Marcus plays his car radio. In real life, Terry Crews actually does love that song.
Terry Crews's line, "Oh no, my brother, you gotta get your own" (spoken to Shawn Wayans when Shawn is pretending to be a parking valet), is taken from a record commercial that used to air frequently on BET (Black Entertainment Television) during the 1980s.
Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans previously co-wrote and starred in Scary Movie 2 (2001), which parodied The Exorcist (1973). Jennifer Carpenter, who played Lisa in this movie, also starred in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005).
In one scene, Gomez and Harper refer to the Copelands as the Dynamic Duo, Baskin and Robbin, an obvious play on Batman and Robin. Marlon Wayans was slated to play Robin in Batman Returns (1992), but was cut due to script rewrites. They could have been referring to the ice cream chain Baskin Robbins.
At the charity ball at The Royal Hamptons Hotel, a sign is displayed above the stage for the Southampton Nuclear Opposition Benefit. The first letters of the words spell the word "SNOB," probably referring to the many wealthy people who live or holiday in the Hamptons.
