Martha Coolidge had a dispute with the studio in the editing room. As a first-time filmmaker, she shot several scenes with gratuitous nudity, but chose to keep them out of the film during the cutting process. The studio disagreed and eventually fired her. Coolidge decided not to request an Alan Smithee credit, though she has said in interviews that she sometimes regrets that decision.

John Belushi was offered a role in this film numerous times but he originally turned it down. He eventually accepted the role but died shortly after. The producers were exited of having him on the poster wearing a diaper, even though no such scene appeared in the script. This was in the period Penny Marshall was supposed to direct based on a screenplay by John Hughes.
