The director allowed the actors, particularly Dane Cook, to improvise extensively, often diverging completely from the script. He would sometimes run 20 or more takes, letting the performers do something different every time, before settling on a few of those ideas in order to get pick-ups or close-ups. This made life particularly interesting for the principal and background actors in the scene with Dane, as well as for the prop and sound personnel.
You can stop trying to be clever Alexis because the funniest thing that will ever come out of you is me.
Towards the end of the movie when Tank catches up to Alekis in the park running, she takes out her headphones to see who is calling her name, once she realizes it is Tank she puts her headphones back in. In the next shot her headphones are hanging around her neck.
The UK DVD release in 2009 had all the cuts made to the cinema release waived and was consequently passed '18'.
