  • The parents of lead actor (River Phoenix) asked director (William Richert) to remove a line by character Joyce Fickett in which she states to Jimmy Reardon; "Jimmy, I want to fuck you", fearing that it would affect their 16 year old sons relationship with his tween fan base. Richert refused to remove it completely but muted the line instead.
  • The movies narration was originally performed by director (William Richert). 20th Century Fox decided the movie would be better geared towards a teen audience and Richert's narration sounded 'too grandfather like'.

  • Matthew Perry's movie debut.
