* DawsonCasting: This time it's a little more pronounced than it's in predecessor, as the still 17/18 year old Laurie is played by a now 23 year old Jamie Lee Curtis (thanks to this ImmediateSequel being filmed three years later).
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/TheLastStarfighter Alex Rogan]] as Jimmy
** [[Film/WaynesWorld Garth Algar]] as "Assistant"
* {{Recut}}: The film had a few new things for the TV Cut. These include some alternate cuts of scenes, some scene and dialogue extensions, and a scene added to the end that takes place in the ambulance.
-->'''Laurie:''' We made it. ''We made it!''
