Song From the OST


  • Toward the end of filming, Zac Efron had appendicitis. At first, Thomas Lennon advised Zac Efron that it was, in fact, bad wind and advised him to hang upside down to cure it. What started out as a stomachache, soon led to him checking it out after filming and having surgery the same night.
  • Zac Efron called Matthew Perry for help on his lines and mimicking some of his movements to give a more authentic performance.
  • Leslie Mann is only 13 years older than Michelle Trachtenberg who plays her daughter.
  • Shipped to theaters under the code name “Rewind.”
