Chris Tucker wears a Styrofoam hair piece for the entirety of the film.

The jail scene with Faizon Love listening to Chris Tucker explain his arrest, was not originally scripted. Love visited Tucker on set during the filming of that scene. The director expressed his uncertainty for the written scene, which had another man chasing Tucker around the cell. The director proposed, that Love and Tucker do the scene. The two came up with dialog and movements, moments before filming. It took 89 takes to finalize that scene due to uncontrolled laughter from the actors and the director.

This film essentially marks the last in which Chris Tucker plays a character who cusses excessively due to Tucker becoming a born-again Christian in the late 90s.

Antwone Fisher did script doctoring work for this film.

Paul Sirvino and Vic Damone (Who Tucker claims to be his father) actually went to the same school

The role of Aaron was originally meant for Clifton Powell.

When Franklin (Chris Tucker) is in the jail cell, he shows his cell mate (Faizon Love) how the cops grabbed him the same way as in Friday (1995), also starring Tucker and Love.

The film opens with Barry White's 1974 hit single You're the First, the Last, My Everything. Throughout the film, Chris Tucker's character makes references to the song - including the scene where he proposes a toast and recites the lyrics.

Although the only screen time Charlie Sheen and Paul Gleason share together is during the scene when Chris Tucker and Sheen's characters are being shot at by Gleason and Daniel Roebuck's characters, Gleason did appear with Sheen's brother, Emilio Estevez, in "The Breakfast Club" (1985) and had plenty of scenes with him.

Second movie for Chris Tucker to star with a actor who last name is Sheen. In this one, he co stars with Charlie Sheen who plays Russle. In his other movie Dead Presidents, one of his co stars is Martin Sheen (Charlie's real life father) who plays the Judge towards the end of the movie who sentences Anthony (Larenz Tate) to prison.
