The pink gown that Jennifer Lopez wears to the fund-raising dinner, is a vintage gown from the 1950s. This was stated by Jennifer to a contestant auditioning on American Idol, season fourteen. The contestant told J. Lo she was a big fan of her and the movie, and tried to find a duplicate of that same gown for her prom, but was unable to find one.
Story Writer John Hughes requested that his name be removed from the credits, as the finished product had very little of his original script, which was set in Chicago. His pseudonym "Edmond Dantès" comes from the title character of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Hughes used the same credit in Beethoven (1992) and Drillbit Taylor (2008).
