Song From the OST
When Harry and Lloyd are in the car, Lloyd asks if Harry wants to hear the most annoying sound in the world. This was not originally in the script
According to the Farrelly brothers, Jeff Daniels wasn’t wanted for the film, but Jim Carrey wanted him in it. In order to ensure a no from him, they offered Daniels $50,000 for the role. He accepted without any hesitation nor did he attempt to negotiate, despite insistence from his agent the film would “kill his career.” By 1994, the film was Daniels’ most successful.
Jim Carrey chipped his tooth years earlier, but had the cap removed for the film to make his character look more deranged.
In order for Jeff Daniels to attain Harry’s frizzy hair, during filming he was instructed to wash his hair only, and not to use conditioner, blow dry it, or even comb it
The rat poison pills were Smarties.
Harry and Lloyd are named after the (silent) comedy star Harold Lloyd.
