The film marks the twentieth anniversary of Ben and Jerry Stiller working in a film together. Their first appearance was in the John Cusack comedy-adventure, Hot Pursuit (1987), in which they played father and son villains.
In the drinking scene, where Eddie is introduced to Miranda's family, the Progressive insurance spokeswoman "Flo" is sitting across from Polly Holiday, who played "Flo" on the television series Alice (1976).
Eddie and Miranda come back from their fun date singing "Ashes to Ashes" by David Bowie. Not only does car singing annoy Eddie, but he is happily singing along with Miranda to Lyla's favorite singer (remember the underwear).
