Added DiffLines:

* AmateurCast: Most of the cast were local residents who responded to an open casting call hoping to be extras. George Harvey, who played the father, was a dentist with no prior acting experience who showed up for fun, and Don Packard, who played the store owner, was a mental hospital patient on a day trip.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeRelative: The young son of the Presents (the Nilbog family who were doing the house exchange with the Waits) was played by Gavin Reed, son of Deborah Reed (Creedence).


Added DiffLines:

* TroubledProduction: Actually an efficiently-produced film, made for around $200,000 and finished in three weeks. But the cast was made up of Utah locals, many of whom had no professional acting experience (and who assumed the casting call was supposed to be for extras). To make matters worse, only one member of the all-Italian crew spoke fluent English, and the cast were only given the script a few pages at a time, and very minimal and confusing direction. And the director wouldn't allow the actors to change the awkwardly-phrased dialogue, leaving the actors even more in the dark about what was happening. It all added up to a glorious trainwreck of a film.

* HeyItsThatGuy: The costumes were designed by Laura Gemser of ''Emmanuelle'' fame. That's right: the costumes were made by an actress famous for... not wearing clothes.



* VindicatedByCable: Er, depending on your definition of "vindicated", but no one had heard of this film til it hit {{HBO}}.

* EnforcedMethodActing: The drug store owner looks genuinely insane and maniacal, because the "actor" Don Packard was a patient at a mental institution during filming and stumbled onto the set while on a day pass.
