  • In one scene, Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" plays loudly on the record player. His band was "The Strangers."
  • Mark Romanek was originally slated to direct the film.
  • Many theaters across the United States was sent faulty reels of the movie, containing sound problems, which made a few minutes to several scenes of the movie filled with nothing but static. Most movie-watchers don't even realize the sound was a problem, since the dark overtone and loud background music at some areas make the static seem like part of the movie.
  • Liv Tyler suffered from tonsillitis during shooting.
