In a 2006 interview with Good Morning America, Jennifer Anniston joked about now being "very intimate" with her wardrobe and makeup people after they helped get her ready for her full nude scene. She also added being naked like that isn't something she normally does, even in her personal life. "I've never taken that long of a walk nude in my own home, so that was a first all the way around."

When Gary walks into the apartment with the grocery bag (before the dinner party) the bag starts out standing up on the butcher block. In the next shot it's folded up and the mixer's missing, then the next shot it's folded up, laying down on the other side of the mixer. See more »
You all know the story. I don't think anyone would have expected it to be so loud, but the story is that one. The break up of two people who were not suppose to be together in the first place. He is that obnoxious guy offering her a hot dog. She meets him at the same time we do. I would have run as far as possible as fast as possible but apparently there was something about this slightly deranged tourist guide who likes to play video games that appealed to her. Well, so, my dear you deserve every bit you're going to get. Vince Vaughn has all the "funny' lines and she is like a farcical woman from yesteryear, dating other guys to make him jealous. I'm not kidding, that's what she does, while he goes to visit Jon Favreau - the best bits in the film - to cry his miseries to the one other character more moronic than himself. Glimpses of Judy Davis, Ann-Margret and Vincent D'Onofrio give the movie an unexpected lift but, dear me, dear me. Rush to see the films of Preston Sturges, I'm talking to the filmmakers naturally. The awful part of the whole thing is that I found myself laughing and that as far as 2006 comedies is not half bad. Isn't that just terrible?
