In the scene-specific DVD audio commentary for the film Emile Hirsch reveals that when shooting the scene where Elisha Cuthbert forces him to strip, director Luke Greenfield wanted him to shave his chesthair but Hirsch who was 17 at the time refused because, as he himself puts it, "did not wanna shave off my manhood".
Elisha Cuthbert filmed this movie while she was filming 24 (2001). When asked about the hectic schedule, she said, "Our weekends were Monday and Tuesday and the show was, obviously, Saturday and Sunday, so every day for three months."
