Did you know?
Director Emilio Estevez's first choice to play the Film Professor was James Lipton, but because of the Toronto location shoot and Lipton's Inside the Actors Studio (1994) schedule, the role ultimately went to Peter Bogdanovich.

Initially, Showtime sent the script to Charlie Sheen and asked him to play Artie. At that time they had no one in mind for Jim. Sheen then sent the script on to Emilio Estevez, who loved it and expressed a desire to direct. Sheen then got back to Showtime, telling them he wouldn't appear unless Emilio both acted and directed.

The real Jim Mitchell was invited to work on the film as a historical consultant but he declined. However, Artie Mitchell's second wife, Karen (played by Nicole de Boer) did work on the film.

When Jim is driving to Artie's place at the end of the film, when he leaves his house, it is pouring rain, and when he arrives at Artie's it is pouring rain, but between these two shots, there is a high altitude shot of his car on the Golden Gate Bridge, and not only is it not raining, but the ground is clearly not even wet.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags are used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Why do the Mitchell brothers call one another 'Bob'?
Throughout the course of the film, both Jim and Artie call one another Bob numerous times, and during the making of Sodom and Gomorrah, they both have chairs marked 'Bob.' At Artie's wedding to Meredith, he and Jim are asked what is the significance of this, and Artie explains "It's our old man's middle man", to which Meredith replies "So?" Jim then answers "And that's all you need to know." Nothing more is said about it for the duration of the film, and the actual reason as to why they call one another Bob is never explained.
