Trivia: In the part of the movie that begins with Valentine's Day, there's a shot of a store with a heart (and other Valentine's decorations) in the window. Pasted on the heart is a black silhouette of a man and woman looking into each other's eyes. If you look closely, you'll notice the silhouette is of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Trivia: When Tom Hanks is listing the names of all the girls he 'made it with' in college, he lists 'Mary Kelly' as the eighth one. Mary Kelly is the name of the script superviser, and she also has a small role as the woman afraid of flying on the plane with Meg Ryan.

Trivia: Dyan Cannon, who is mentioned in the film and was married to Cary Grant (who is also mentioned in the movie), grew up in Seattle - West Seattle, specifically. The large house where many interior shots were filmed is in the West Seattle neighborhood (where I live) on Sunset Drive. This house is less than two blocks down the same street from where Dyan Cannon's father was living at the time.
