Alice in Chains vocalist William DuVall has a non-speaking, uncredited role as a bar patron in the opening moments of the film. The logo of DuVall's then-band Comes With The Fall also appeared in the movie.

The plot to this movie shares several similarities to The Sting (1973).

Early in the movie, Lily (Rachel Weisz) leaves a scene in a blue 1970s Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Cabriolet (recognizable by the large taillights).

The word "fu-ck" was said one hundred thirty times.

Dustin Hoffman, Rachel Weisz, Leland Orser, and Luis Guzmán appeared in Runaway Jury (2003).

When they talk about, and show their job in a "Tampa, Florida" port, they are actually showing the Port of Los Angeles. Tampa doesn't have a bridge like the one that is in the movie.

Sweet Talker (1991), whose story centers around a con-man confidence trickster played by Bryan Brown, had the original working title of "Confidence".

Edward Burns and Donal Logue both star in The Groomsmen (2006).
