Trivia
The leather jacket that Greg Kinnear wore while playing 'Bob Crane' in the Hogan's Heroes (1965) scenes in this movie was the one that 'Bob Crane' actually wore during that TV series Hogan's Heroes (1965). Crane's son Bob Jr. (Robert David Crane) loaned the jacket to Greg Kinnear for this movie. Prior to Hogan's Heroes (1965), this jacket was worn by Frank Sinatra in Von Ryan's Express (1965).

Goofs
There is a glimpse of the famous Capitol Records building painted silver. At the time of the film, it was actually painted black to resemble a stack of records.

Early in the film, the character of Bob Crane is seen playing the drums in his house. On the underside of both cymbals the large black Zildjian logo is clearly visible. This part of the film takes place in 1964, but the Zildjian company did not put this large logo on the underside of their cymbals until over a decade later. In 1964 they would only have had a manufacturer's stamp on the top and no ink logo. They are clearly modern cymbals.

Crane's kitchen phone in the '60s has a modern (at least 1970s) modular cord on the handset.

Quotes
Bob Crane: I'm a normal, red-blooded American man. I like to look at naked women. I love breasts, any kind. I love 'em! Boobs, bazooms, balloons, bags, bazongas. The bigger, the better. Nipples like udders, nipples like saucers, big pale rosy-brown nipples. Little bitty baby nipples. Real or fake, what's the difference? I like tits. Who's kidding who? Tits are great!
