Ex-cop and former Fox TV news reporter, Mike Sheehan appears as the desk sergeant in this film. Mr. Sheehan was arrested in March, 2009 for hitting a mounted policeman with his car. This was the same charge that Nicole Hurley, Jennifer Aniston's character, was charged with.
When the Black S.U.V. that is following/chasing them flips/overturns, Milo and Nicole sift through the wreckage. She sarcastically calls him "Kojak". This is a sweet nod to Telly Savalas, who is Jennifer Aniston's godfather, having been her father's (John Aniston's) best friend.
Producer Neal H. Moritz and director Andy Tennant are neighbors. One day they were chatting to each other over their fence when Moritz asked Tennant if he was working on anything at that moment. Tennant replied that he wasn't doing anything at the time. That was when Moritz realized that his neighbor would be the perfect choice to direct this screenplay.
