Trivia
The Ducky Boys, an actual Bronx gang that was portrayed in the movie, continued in existence through the 1970s. Though portrayed in the movie and Richard Price novel as "killers", neighborhood residents recall the gang as annoying rather than criminal.

Goofs
In the opening scene, when Turkey is walking to meet the Baldies and talking with Joey, the film crew can be seen in the reflections of the cars he passes.
Share this
When Joey, Richie and Nina pull up to the party (and duck down so the parents won't see them) they're in a 1960 Chevrolet. When they get out, it's a different car.
Share this
Perry and his friends are driving after Nina, when they get lost and are found to be in the place of the Ducky Boys. After that, Perry goes out from his car to fight with them, when one of the Ducky Boys hit him with a baseball club until it breaks up. When the same guy is seen again in a different scenery, the baseball club is back to normal.
