One of the last scenes in the film, with Andre on the airplane, was filmed several months after the initial completion of the film. The scene was added because test audiences reacted badly to Erin standing-up Andre at the end of the film. The intention of the scene was to show that Andre was not a nice guy (as he had been throughout the film) and remove any sympathy viewers had for him. The fact that this scene was filmed so much later also explains why Andre's hair is significantly different in that scene than in the rest of the film.
Sean left me, Mom.
Piper Castleton: No! And you let him?
Erin Castleton: Did I have a choice?
Piper Castleton: Dear, sweetness, light of my life - with men, you always have a choice.
The MBTA (subway) map at the beginning of the film is wrong. It also doesn't correspond to the subway route used in the movie. The conductor says the next stop inbound is Aquarium from Airport. The map says the next stop should be Maverick (which it is, in real life).
