Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • SPOILER: Toward the end of the movie, Lisa, Mr. Kellerman, and several others sing an anthem to the Kellerman's resort ("Join hands and hearts and voices/ Voices, hearts and hands...") in the talent show. This song's lyrics were written for the movie, but the tune is a traditional one (known variously as "Amici" or "Annie Lisle") from the early 1800s that has been used as the basis for the alma maters for many well-known American universities, including Cornell University, The University of Alabama, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Size of the hole in Johnny's back window changes between shots.
  • According to the book "The Catskills Alive" by Francine Silverman, Jackie Horner was the prototype for the Penny Johnson character.
  • The film was re-released in 1997 solely due to a petition led by late-night talk show host 'Conan OBrien in which he asked viewers to send letters calling for the film's re-release. When exhibitors finally agreed, O'Brien joked that he actually didn't like the movie all that much.
