* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot : One of the more interesting elements of the remake is Lisa's budding romance with Marco, son of Tito the bandleader, in a time when interracial relationships were forbidden (and marriage illegal). Likewise, the examinations of class and race from the original film are missing from the remake, despite giving Penny a RaceLift.

In addition to the prequel, there was a ''very'' short lived TV series based on the film, which ran on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1988 to 1989. In addition to not having any of the original cast and very limited involvement from the crew, the show had one glaring plot change: Baby was now Max Kellerman's daughter and in charge of Johnny as the resort's talent director.
