At the time the movie was made and released lead star Matt Lattanzi was in a relationship with Olivia Newton-John where upon they would soon be married in 1984 the following year after this film launched. The pair divorced in 1995.
The film is supposed to take place during the summer in Southern California, yet when the boys are waiting for the waitress in the diner parking lot, you can clearly see the vapor of the actors' breath.
In the scene where Bobby is having his birthday party, there is a band playing a song onstage in Bobby's family backyard. The singer of the band is singing the song, but during the song he is dancing in circles away from the microphone, and his voice is still singing the part of the song, "La Duh Da Duh Da".
