Trivia

The film held a private screening for the Canadian Government in an effort to stop bill C-10, a censorship amendment that would stop "offensive" films from getting funding. The governing party refused to see it, however the opposition parties watched it.
Credited with being the film single-handedly responsible for bill C-10, a new Canadian bill that would give the federal Heritage Department the power to deny funding for films and TV shows it considers offensive. Eventually, due to public outcry and the film's success, the bill was rescinded.
The movie was shot in 5 bedrooms.
Actors Aaron Abrams and Carly Pope ("The Friends") didn't get to meet until a semi-nude promotional photo shoot, just the day before filming. "We got to know each other pretty damn quick." Pope says.
Sarah Polley was attached at one time, but had to drop out when her film Away from Her (2006) was green-lit.
It is one of the most successful and highest grossing Canadian films of all time, staying in Canadian theaters for over 15 weeks.
Martin Gero and his friend and co-writer Aaron Abrams wrote the scripts in about 6 months, sending each other versions via email.
