Trivia: Debbie Reynolds and Albert Brooks play mother and son in this film. In real life, Reynolds (born 1932) was only fifteen years older than Brooks (born 1947).

Other mistake: In the beginning, Albert Brooks and Lisa Kudrow are eating dinner at a restaurant and Albert mentions his books, plural, but then he says book, singular. All the way he's said book, so what is it - books or book?
