Song From the OST
During the fight in the ladies’ room, Ashley (Missi Pyle) tells Charlene Morton (Queen Latifah) it’s “courtesy of Tae Bo, two hours a day, five days a week.” In real life, Pyle is trained in taekwando.
Steve Martin developed a scrape on his forehead after the scene where he hit his head by the steering wheel.
Queen Latifah’s character’s name is “Charlene Morton”. Morton was also the last name of her character in Chicago (2002).
The exterior of Steve Martin’s “new” law office is at 1333 Ocean Blvd. It was, at the time of filming, an actual law office. The building formerly housed two of Los Angeles’s most notable attorneys, Charles English and Gerald Chaleff.
Sarah Sanderson is also the name of the witch from Hocus Pocus.
