Song From the OST


  • A lot of the movie was improvised, and a lot of the gags were pitched by the actors on the day of shooting
  • As part of the promotion for the movie at the Comicon in San Diego, promoters threw a huge “Welcome” party open to the public, with barbecue, beer, skateboarding demos, and a wall where people could write “subjects” they’d like to study. Justin Long and other cast members mixed in with the crowd, to the point that you couldn’t pick them out.
  • The character of Ben Lewis was specifically written for Lewis Black.
  • Even though he plays a recent high school graduate, Justin Long was 27 when this movie was filmed.
  • Bollywood has a remake of this movie called F.A.L.T.U
