The age of the character Miles Caraday, played by Christopher George Marquette is unclear. "Variety", "The New York Times" and IMDb report the character age as 10, while the "San Francisco Chronicle", "Village Voice", "Chicago Sun-Times" and Rotten Tomatoes report it as 12. The confusion may be because Marquette was 12 at the time he played the role, according to the "Associated Press" and the "Seattle Post-Intelligencer".

Tyrone says that the reason they tic is:

Tyrone: Because we both know the code.
Denny: Code, what code?
Tyrone: "The tic code."
Denny: So you and Miles made this whole thing up?
Tyrone: No, the C.I.A. did, a lot of people know about it now.


The film's screenplay was written by Polly Draper; her husband—jazz musician Michael Wolff—contributed the music score. Wolff and Draper also produced the film. Wolff has Tourette's and the script was loosely based on his life.cite news|author=Anderson, Brett|title=Playing It Backward: Musician's Medical Disorder May Be a Grace Note|work=The Washington Post|date=June 8, 2001|page=C01|quote=Wolff's diagnosis might have remained a family secret had Draper not decided to write a screenplay loosely based on his life. [...] Bruce Lundvall, the president of Blue Note Records, has called "The Tic Code" the best jazz movie since "Round Midnight." The film even succeeds in linking its two subjects by exploring the idea that Tourette's isn't an entirely bad thing, particularly if you happen to be a jazz musician.] cite web|url=|format=PDF|publisher=Tourette Syndrome Association|title=TSA Family Portrait: Jazz Musician Michael Wolff|date=Fall 1998|accessdate=2007-11-11]
