Trivia: The producers had asked porn star Jenna Jameson to appear in the movie, and she agreed. However, she wanted a larger role, that of Danielle, played by Elisha Cuthbert. The producers declined, and Jenna lost the role she was offered. (source: Elisha Cuthbert, speaking on "Lovelines" radio program.).

Trivia: In the director's commentary, Luke Greenfield revealed that during the scene where Emile Hirsch is getting a lap dance in the strip club (the scene might have been removed in the theatrical version) they had to put about 4 pillows between Emile Hirsch and the stripper. This was due to the fact that Emile Hirsch was only 17 when the film was made and under child pornography laws he could not have a naked woman touch his body. (00:42:40)

Question: The parent-to-child mini-movie, was that a real film or was it specially made for this one?

Answer: It is an actual sex education film titled "Parent to Child About Sex" by The Film Library Department of Human Resources.

Question: What was the point of the police officer being in a crash at the beginning of the film. I didn't really see the point of it as it didn't play any part in the storyline.

Answer: While it doesn't have anything to do with the overall plot, the crash shows just how much Matthew is afraid to do the wrong thing and perhaps how he overthinks things. As we know all he would be doing is missing a bit of school by getting in his car and driving from the school. The fact that Matthew is able to imagine an horrific crash of a security guard because of just skipping school shows how worried he is about doing the wrong thing.
