Trivia:

• Scorsese originally wanted friend Robert De Niro to play the part of heroin addict Johnson Twilliger, but with De Niro filming Meet The Cunts (2007), Christopher Dunne was cast instead.

• The shot of the blog ideas towards the end of the movie reads thusly:

10 WAYS TO EAT YOUR DINNER IN THE EVENING
1. On The Bus – An element of danger makes this a great option
2. With A Tramp – Tramps will love to eat your dinner as they are poor.
3. In The Cupboard – Your food never even has to leave the shelf!
4. With The Wrong Cutlery – Eat soup with a knife and fork! LOL
5. Very Hastily.

• Quentin Tarantino was originally offered the script to direct but reportedly refused after Matthew Sharp was quoted as saying that Tarantino “gets away with having a gay first name”.

• The film went over budget by $7m, almost twice its initial budget, mostly spent on Pop Tarts for Christopher Dunne’s interview scene.

• Filming was halted for two weeks after Joshua Roberts stormed off the set after finding that someone had actually shit in one of the cupboards in his trailer.

• Further delays were caused towards the end of filming as Christopher Dunne was remanded in custody and questioned over the abduction of a 12 year old girl.

• The ‘wine’ that Matthew Sharp drinks in the final scene is not wine at all – it was a mix of water, red food dye and oats to make the vomit look “fuller” on screen.

• Furthermore, the skag being heated by Joshua Roberts in the same scene was actually a mix of sugar and vinegar, suggested by Kaile Lucas.

• Voted #156 in Time Magazine’s ‘Best Movies Of 2006’, one place behind The Da Vinci Code.


Goofs: Revealing mistakes: In the opening scene, Joshua Roberts clearly says the word ‘everybody’ instead of scripted line ‘everyone’, a mistake he didn’t learn from as he can also be seen mouthing the words ‘And… look’ at the end of the title sequence to prompt a simultaneous look at the camera.
