The identical triplets dressed in the same outfit outside the publishing house where Madonna places a personal ad were real triplets not originally in the script. Director Susan Seidelman noticed them walking down the street while setting up the shot and wanted them in the scene, as they captured the film's theme of doubling. These three brothers were separated at birth and received a great deal of publicity when they finally met as adults, and were later the subject of the documentary Three Identical Strangers.

When Susan picks up The New York Mirror newspaper, the word lotto is spelled Looto on the front page. This is a play on the tendency of New York tabloids (such as the Post) to run short punchy headlines with broad puns ("loot" being a term for money, in case anyone missed that). See more »

The song heard in the beginning of the movie is "The Shoop Shoop song" in the US version whereas it is "One fine day" in the European one, possibly for copyright reasons. See more »
"Desperately Seeking Susan" was certainly inventive, original, and oftentimes fun. The acting was actually decent, even from Madonna (whose acting has won her 6 Razzies). However, I think the movie suffers from being labelled a comedy. While a couple lines brought a smile or a chuckle, I rarely laughed throughout this movie. Not that there were jokes that didn't work; I couldn't tell what was even supposed to be funny! The whole situation was amusing, but I wouldn't call it laugh-out-loud funny. Eh, whatever. I'd still recommend it.
