The rumor: Jackie Earle Haley auditioned for the first A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) , and his friend Johnny Depp tagged along but was so handsome they asked him to audition, eventually giving him, not Haley, a part in the film. The truth: Jackie Earle Haley told Moviesonline, "It is possible that I auditioned for Nightmare on Elm Street and don't remember. It's also possible that I could have been sitting next to Johnny in the waiting room. That's the only thing I could figure where that started from."

(at around 55 mins) During swimming practice, Quentin is shown hanging off the dive platform at the end of his lane, listening to the coach talk. 3 or 4 drops of water rise out of the pool and fly up to his elbow, revealing that this particular scene is being played in reverse. (Also you can just make out from the top right of the screen that the coach is actually walking backwards, as shown by the string coming from his right pocket which you can see in the next camera angle)
The movie's title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 10 minutes into the movie.
