Flip Kelly: You look awesome
Billy Bloom: Seriously? Four hours in hair and makeup. I've been preened, plucked and bustiered so tightly that my toes are turning blue, and "Awesome"?... No. I look Atlantastic
Flip Kelly: Okay, Atlantastic. Why'd you run away after class today?
Billy Bloom: I didn't run. I was chased
Flip Kelly: Oh. We're making progress, right? I mean, you're not getting beamed in the head anymore
Billy Bloom: Am i not?
  • AnnaSophia Robb was attending NYU during filming and would shoot her scenes around her class schedule. She wanted to take part in the film despite the demands of school because she felt it was an interesting and important story to tell and she wanted to be part of it.
  • Bette Midler did not want to do another film and repeatedly turned down offers to appear in Freak Show. She was finally convinced to at least read the script and immediately said "I'll do it."
  • Bette Midler's first motion picture in nearly four years after 'Parental Guidance' in 2012.
  • Trudie Styler took over directing when the original director had to drop out due to personal conflicts.
  • Filmed in 2015, Lynette was given the line "Make America great again" as a joke, which became more poignant after Donald Trump won the US presidency.
