- The message "For Sasha" appears just before the end credits. This refers to Sasha Cassavetes, daughter of director 尼克·卡萨维蒂.
- The scene where 乔治 is speaking about health care while John and Denise are watching television, was also shot with footage of 阿尔·戈尔, because the election winner had not yet been declared at the time of shooting.
- The movie was shot in a group of provincial government buildings in Toronto, Ontario. Adjacent to filming, is a hospital. On at least one occasion, filming blocked off access to the emergency room of the real hospital.
