- Theatrical release: February 8, 2001 (NY).
- Dan Wakefield, whose memoir the film is based on, created the TV series, JAMES AT 15, which gained a cult following for its brutally honest view of suburban teenage life. Wakefield also wrote the novel STARTING OVER, which was made into a film, directed by Alan J. Pakula and starring Burt Reynolds, Jill Clayburgh, and Candice Bergen. He also wrote GOING ALL THE WAY, and wrote the script for Mark Pellington's feature based on the book, which starred Jeremy Davies and Ben Affleck.
- This is director-producer Betsey Blankenbaker's first feature film.
- The film is dedicated to "James," presumably James Baldwin.
- Mark Van Doren, the Columbia University professor whom Wakefield praises in the film, was the father of Charles Van Doren, of the infamous '21' quiz show scandal.
- Paul Scofield played Mark Van Doren in Robert Redford's QUIZ SHOW (1994), in which Wakefield had a cameo.
- Wakefield has said that his favorite actress is Lisa Kudrow.
