Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1) | Spoilers (3)
The scene where Lulu tells Shane that she thinks he's cute and Shane's embarrassed response was based on a real life incident on set. Morgan York (the actress who plays Lulu), upon meeting Vin Diesel, actually said that to him and he awkwardly responded with a "thank you". The director thought it was so funny that he put it in the film.
They had to shine a red light at Vin Diesel's ear to get the duck to bite it.
Originally Jackie Chan was attached to this film. The ninjas in the movie are from his stunt team.
In the first scene, the ocean is actually a huge swimming pool.
An actual Navy SEAL was on set.
The idea of the family having a pet duck was introduced by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant when their script had Jackie Chan attached. The running joke was that Chan's plan to kill the duck and cook it for dinner horrified the kids, and therefore Chan ended up reluctantly keeping and taking care of the pet. Even when Chan exited the project and other writers worked on the script, the duck stayed all the way through to the finished film.
The address handed to Shane (3 Rosemary Lane) is the real address of the house. The house is actually in Toronto, though.
The first day of shooting for the movie took place with the scene when Shane sees Seth outside the theater.
When Shane is in Peter's room, before Lulu asks him about his "boobs", on the floor are letter blocks spelling out "One Race". One Race is the production company owned by Vin Diesel.
Boo Berries cereal is not sold in Toronto so Adam Shankman's assistant had to drive to Buffalo, NY, to get it.
Dwayne Johnson was considered for the role of Shane Wolfe.
They used the same live duck throughout the movie.
When Tate Donovan is tied up, the set used was actually in a cafeteria.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Just to get one shot of the baby falling asleep towards the end of the movie, they had a camera on him for four hours.
When Morgan York and her troop fight the enemies, the crew used a 14-year-old girl to do the cartwheels.
The play at the end of the movie was shot in a local (Toronto) professional theater called Theatre Passe Murielle. Over four days, many scenes from The Sound of Music (1965) were shot, including "Do, Re, Mi", "My Favorite Things" and "The Lonely Goatherder". These scenes were fully staged, choreographed and costumed. Some of the costumes came from the original "Sound of Music" film. In the end, almost all of it ended up on the cutting room floor.
