Trivia
According to Gillian Vigman, the main actors were unhappy on set. Kristin Chenoweth was still coping with her split from Aaron Sorkin, Danny DeVito flew in to film his scenes rather than interact with anyone, and Matthew Broderick could be found on set shaking his head in disbelief, repeatedly stating "I've hit rock bottom." Kristin Davis told her that she should have her eggs frozen.

In a 22 November 2006 interview on ABC's Live with Kelly and Michael (1988), Kristin Davis confessed she had been nervous being cast as the wife of Matthew Broderick, the real-life husband of close friend Sarah Jessica Parker. She said she received approval via email from Parker, however not before a re-write of the script added what Davis termed a playful kissing scene between herself and Broderick. Apparently, according to Davis, in her opinion, the scene as filmed was too steamy for the film to keep a PG rating and would have been cut from the final print.

For the scene in which Steve and Buddy are in a speed skating race, Matthew Broderick had to train with a real speed skater for a few months beforehand.
