Adam Sandler's real life wife, Jackie Sandler, and their daughters, Sadie Sandler and Sunny Sandler, appear in the film as Tardio (Richie Minervini)'s wife and daughters.
Director Dennis Dugan has a cameo during the opening credits as the basketball referee.
The lake rope swing scene was added at the last second when during filming. Adam Sandler told the story of how it happened to him and it was decided to include the scene in the movie. It was then decided it would be funnier if it happened to Kevin James' character.
Adam Sandler wears a different New England area college shirt or hat in nearly every scene.
