Jim Winston has a chance to display his throwing knife skills early in the film, only to apparently miss what he is aiming at. Later on, it is revealed he actually hit a fly dead center, his true target. This sequence is taken nearly verbatim from _Guo chan Ling Ling Qi (1994)_. See more »
When the Russian man with the beard visits the models' apartment, a girl answers the door with a book on her head. As she talks, it begins to slide to the left of her head, the camera angle then changes to a view over her left shoulder, her arm never moves, but in the next shot the book is perfectly balanced atop the center of her head.

I'll admit it: it's utterly embarrassing to watch this movie with another human being. I was embarrassed when I laughed uncontrollably at things numerous reviews had told me were idiotic humor. Well, this movie is idiotic. It's also adorable romantic comedy, with a funny and somewhat original premise . . . at least, it's cobbled together from original premises, like the "Rear Window" setup where Amanda thinks she witnesses her obsession across the street, Jim, murdering someone. Freddie Prinze Jr is completely irresistible, and Monica Potter's somewhat one-note nice-girl cuteness is made palatable by the insanity of her four supermodel roommates and her practical lesbian friend. Watch this, laugh hard and don't be embarrassed, because this movie, even at its most poorly scripted moments, is earnestly trying to make you laugh, unlike most of today's prefab romantic comedies, whose earnestness is sheer manipulation. Plus, only a small percentage of those have Freddie in them.
