Trivia: When Jim is making his debut at The Balkpark in Arlington, the Devil Rays are wearing their current jerseys. Their current jerseys came out in the 2000 or 2001 season. The movie was shot in 1999 when they had different jerseys. However, at the end where the shot is of Jim's D- Ray's jersey is hanging at the high school, it is a 1999 hat and a 2000 or 2001 jersey. Tampa Bay never had that jersey combo.
Trivia: When "Auto Focus" debuted, Bob Crane's son, Scotty Crane, complained loudly that the film was completely inaccurate and misleading. Scotty said that, while his father had been a lifelong sex-addict who recorded and photographed sex acts as far back as 1956, he was not a church-goer (as depicted in the film), he never tried S&M (as depicted in the film), and that he only started socializing with John Henry Carpenter in 1975, long after the Hogan's Heroes TV series ended, just 3 years before the unsolved murder that took Bob Crane's life. The film jumbles all of these events out of chronological order, omitting factual events while fabricating pure fantasy events for no other reason than to sensationalize Crane's troubled life and death.
Trivia: This film features five stars of Joss Whedon's "Buffyverse": writer/director/star Amber Benson (Tara Maclay), James Marsters (Spike), Andy Hallett (Lorne), Jeff Rickets (Watcher's Council member), and David Fury (producer/writer/occasional cameos). Emma Caulfield (Anya) also filmed scenes, but they were accidentally taped over and never re-shot, while Tressa DiFiglia is the ex-wife of Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris).
Trivia: Immediately after the botched convenience store robbery, Tom Green tells Jason Lee that he has an idea to make money in the form of a "scam involving pizza delivery." This is surely a joke thrown in by Tom Green because of an attempted scam/skit on the Tom Green Show called Undercutters where he followed around pizza delivery guys with his own pizza in an attempt to undercut their price. Hilarious skit by the way.
Trivia: The officer speaking French is true to historical facts: it was mainly the French Foreign Legion fighting in Indochina at the time. However, the troops were predominantly of German origin (ex Wehrmacht and SS soldiers) and there is no detectable German accent in their French. True, this could be a fully French unit, thus no mistake. In live movies and interviews from the time, German accents in French are common.
