During production, Marisa Tomei did not like driving the 1981 Pontiac Trans Am, which is the car that her character drives in the film. On the last day of shooting, she accidentally backed it into a telephone pole. She later said that the accident "wasn't her fault" and that the car was "a wreck, I should never have agreed to drive it".
