Trivia

Dwayne Johnson has said that this film will be the last film in which he will be credited as "The Rock".
Dwayne Johnson's character, Joe Kingman, suffers a separated shoulder that temporarily knocks him out of the big game. In real life, The Rock actually did suffered a season-ending shoulder separation while playing defensive tackle as a freshman at the University of Miami.
Includes a lot of references to Elvis Presley, including songs and posters. Those were added by director Andy Fickman and Dwayne Johnson who both are Elvis fans.
The scene in which "Joe Kingman" (Dwayne Johnson) runs the whole way through the city to the hospital carrying his daughter Peyton resembles Dustin Hoffman doing the same for his son in the movie Kramer vs. Kramer (1979). Also a movie about a father raising a child on his own.
Dwayne Johnson said he came up with the idea for his character to be such a huge Elvis fan, and suggested the idea to the writers, who loved it and added it to the script. Johnson later said that when they asked how he came up with the idea, Johnson responded that he is Elvis' biggest fan, and much of the Elvis memorabilia his character owns actually belongs to Johnson.
Two bulldogs, named Tubbs and Tank, shared the role of Spike.
Dwayne Johnson sings "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" in this movie. He sang the same song the first time he hosted Saturday Night Live (1975).
Production was pushed back by several months after Dwayne Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon injury during a football practice session.
