* BillingDisplacement: In the end credits, Naomi Campbell is listed before Vanilla Ice.
* BoxOfficeBomb: Made $1.1 million at the box office. Budget: $6 million.
* CreatorBacklash: David Kellogg completely disowned the movie. He then went on to direct his only other film, ''Film/InspectorGadget'', which had the same exact tone and cinematic attention deficit disorder style- at the least, that movie was just a bit better recieved.
* DawsonCasting: Kathy and Nick are meant to be high schoolers, but actors Kristen Minter and John Newton are obviously in their late twenties.
* MoneyDearBoy: Ice admits that he mainly took the role because he was offered over a million dollars to star in it.
* OldShame: For almost everyone involved. Although Ice did make an appearance on ''Podcast/HowDidThisGetMade'' in 2012, and seemed amused by so many people even ''remembering'' his movie.
* StarDerailingRole: Ice's first big attempt to promote himself in film ultimately ensured that he would be sticking with rap for the better part of his career, save for a notoriously SoBadItsGood cameo in the sequel of ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''.
** It also badly hurt newcomer Kristin Minter's hopes of breaking through as an A-list actress.
* WagTheDirector: It was Ice's star-vehicle, so they let him do some of this from the script's inception. This lead to [[ThrowItIn a few improvs he did]] getting kept in (according to Ice, the famous "drop that zero" line was his idea, as well as "lookie lookie lookie in Kat's black bookie"), but even more than that, Ice wanted [[AuthorAppeal lots of motorbikes.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The role of Kathy was originally offered to Gwyneth Paltrow, whose father Bruce forbade her from accepting it, because of the sexuality in the screenplay. Judging from how hard the film bombed and how [[{{Literature/Emma}} many]] [[ShakespeareInLove great]] [[TheRoyalTenenbaums films]] [[Film/IronMan and]] [[Series/{{Glee}} shows]] Paltrow's starred in since, she probably owes her father a huge favor.
