In perhaps the only family aspects of this film, actor Bill Murray included all of his brothers in the cast of this movie. The most notable of these appearances is John Murray who plays James, the on screen brother to Bill’s character.

Do you feel there is any significance to the choice of the main character’s religious name? Frances Xavier is the name of a Catholic saint and Cross has reference to Jesus Christ. (In one of the scenes shot in Franks office, the definition of the word “cross” is posted on a window. It reads: “Something one is nailed to.”)
