- One of the promotions for this film invited people in certain cities to watch and participate in the bashing of office equipment. There was also an Internet campaign that linked to a website where people could expose their bad bosses.
- The film is loosely based on Mike Judge’s animated shorts entitled “Milton”, which ran on Saturday Night Live and MTV’s Liquid Television in the early 1990s.
- During the famous smashing of the copier scene, Peter never actually strikes the device.
