Trivia: 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag
- Actor Allusion:
- The character of Tommy Spinelli is obviously indebted to Joe Pesci's many short-tempered mobster characters. In fact, a gag credit at the end of the film lists "Tommy Devito" (Pesci's character in GoodFellas) as a bodyguard for Spinelli.
- Also, this is hardly the first time that Kristy Swanson has had a rich idiot father and gone vacationing in Mexico.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Movie!Buffy is on vacation in Mexico with her dad George Hamilton? And since when did Harry join the Mafia?
- Playing Against Type: The director had previously won an Oscar for writing Dead Poets Society (an inspirational drama).
