Trivia

The movie was originally called "The Handjob." The title was changed when the production had a hard time securing shooting locations; people thought it was a porn movie.
All the teenagers in the film are played by adults for comedic purposes. Most of them are over the age of 25.
The phrase used in the movie "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" was coined by Australian writer Irina Dunn but later popularized by feminist Gloria Steinem. One of Steinem's book is seen in Brandy's room later in the film. The line is also used in the U2 song "Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World."
Plaza and Simmons (Brandy and Cameron) previously starred together in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
The setting for the movie was based on writer and director Maggie Carey's high school in Boise, ID. Carey graduated from Borah High in 1993, and sculpted many locations in the film to the surrounding area, including Big Bun and Borah Pool.
On an episode of Off Camera with Sam Jones (2014), Aubrey Plaza revealed that she was seated close to her father during the premiere and that her on-screen masturbation scene caused her much anxiety due to this proximity situation. She later stated that her dad enjoyed the movie a lot.

The theater which Brandy and Cameron visit in the movie is called the Boise Town Theater, yet the venue shown at the beginning of the scene is actually the Riviera Theater in Chicago. The closest thing Boise had to a "Boise Town Theater" was the Towne Square Cinemas, which was adjacent to the Boise Towne Square Mall.
