Trivia / Copacabana

  • Dawson Casting: Manilow and O'Toole playing fresh-faced kids in their early twenties when they were actually in their forties and thirties respectively.
  • Reality Subtext: The whole Disappeared Dad subplot sounds an awful lot like Manilow's own life. His father abandoned him and his mother when Manilow was two years old. The movie's storyline perhaps takes it into Wish Fulfillment territory, making parts of it a bit uncomfortable to watch.
