Did You Know?


Porn star Alisha Klass appeared as a cheerleader, but her brief scene was cut. You can see a glimpse of her in the lower right hand part of the screen when Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) is talking to Annette (Reese Witherspoon) on the phone.


Bunny Caldwell: How do you do it? Where do you get your strength?
Kathryn: I know this will sound corny, but, whenever I feel the temptation of peer pressure, I turn to God and he helps me through the problem.


When arriving at Annette's apartment to deliver the package, the doorbell rings before Sebastian touches it.
