Trivia
Randy and Fred each share on-screen scenes and have verbal interaction with three of the Valley Girls; Julie, Stacey and Suzie. However, even though Randy and Fred attend the same 3 venues as Loryn does; the beach, the party and the prom, Fred has the only on-screen scene with her (waiting in the line at the concession stand at the beach)and even in that scene they do not have verbal interaction.

In the "making of" documentary on the 20th anniversary DVD, Elizabeth Daily admitted that she had no idea how to talk like a Valley Girl. To cover this up, she decided that her character, Loryn, would not actually be from the Valley, but from nearby Malibu instead.

Julie's parents are played by Colleen Camp and Frederic Forrest. The two also appeared together in Apocalypse Now (1979) where Forrest was a soldier and Camp was a Playmate sent to entertain the troops.

Goofs
When Julie and Tommy are at Du-par's, he puts his bracelet on her wrist, but because he does not properly fasten the clasp, one end of the bracelet clearly falls open on the table. Deborah Foreman has to obviously keep her wrist rigid on the table for the rest of the scene in order to keep the bracelet from slipping any further.

When Steve takes the first few pictures of Julie and Tommy as they prepare to leave for the prom, the lens cap is on the camera. Steve acts as though he does not notice, yet because the camera is an SLR-style camera, the lens cap would have blocked his view through the viewfinder.
Share this
When Randy and Julie see each other from across the room, a blond boy in an orange shirt walks from right to left behind Randy and Fred. Seconds later, the same boy walks in the same direction behind Randy and Fred again.
