There's a scene where Mike (Nicholas Hoult) is watching a movie while his parents are fighting downstairs. The movie he's watching is Clear and Present Danger (1994) which includes Chris Conrad, who happens to be the brother of Steve Conrad, writer of this movie.
While shooting the film in February, director Gore Verbinski was surprised to find that the weather in Chicago was warm, as it didn't produce any snow. The production designers had to recreate snow from scratch, as the film takes place during the winter season.
