Trivia

In Chris Thompson's first draft, the "Slow Torture" premiere was to be much more star studded: Kurt Russell was tentatively written in as the star of Peter Dragon's picture (Goldie Hawn was referenced in dialog). For the female lead, Thompson wanted a (at the time) recent mother like Uma Thurman or Jada Pinkett Smith who would then get into a discussion about breast feeding with Dragon. Instead of Keanu Reeves, Arnold Schwarzenegger was to be fondled in the theater by Wendy Ward and afterward Matt Damon and Cameron Diaz were to criticize the film, leading Wendy to put down Diaz by mentioning her famous Jiz in her hair scene.

Peter Dragon: Rafkin, I'm trying to celebrate the birth of Christ with my family, and... hundreds of beautiful, young, gay men. How dare you come here on the holiest of days and crap on our Christmas with talk of show business?
Stuart Glazer: [Stuart walks up in a speedo] Peter.
Peter Dragon: Stuart, what are you doing here?
Stuart Glazer: I have a *life.*
