Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
The original plan had Toni Collette as Maggie Feller and Sarah Michelle Gellar as Rose Feller. After Gellar dropped out, Collette agreed to play Rose.
In Her Shoes (2005) was never released on VHS, making it one of the first movies to be released only on DVD.
The poem Maggie reads in the wedding scene is E.E. Cummings' "I Carry Your Heart."
Director Curtis Hanson approached Toni Collette before filming and asked the actress about gaining weight for the part. Collette had complied and proceeded to gain twenty-five pounds for the part, which she subsequently lost during the film's shooting, which is to reflect her character.
In the book, the dog Maggie steals was originally a purebred pug. But Curtis Hanson opted to change it, as he cited that movies tend to inspire people to adopt the same dog breed featured in a film. Hanson opted for a mixed breed, hoping that it would inspire people to adopt a shelter pet instead.
The poems Maggie reads to the bedridden professor are "One Art" by Elizabeth Bishop and "Let Evening Come" by Jane Kenyon.
In the scene where Maggie is auditioning for MTV, the teleprompter says they are going to premiere a new Eminem music video. This is a nod to director Curtis Hanson's previous film, 8 Mile (2002), starring and inspired by the life of the rapper.
The woman pictured as Maggie and Rose's mother is model Ivana Milicevic.
Althought Cameron Diaz plays Toni Collette's younger sister, Diaz is two months older than Collette in real life.
The movie's Jamaican Jerk Hut locale, which appears in two major scenes, is an actual Philadelphia restaurant on South Street, west of Broad.
An animated open title sequence was created for the film a year before its release and then cut from the final picture, when the producers decided to make the film seem more serious.

According to director Curtis Hanson, during the time Honeybun, the mixed breed dog Maggie steals from the groomer, had the crew become quite taken with her. When her scenes were wrapped, Hanson said crew members had approached him about possibly adopting the dog. Hanson opted to have Honeybun's trainer adopt her, as he felt the dog had a rapport with the trainer.
