- Enforced Method Acting: The cast really are running for their lives when the tree falls through the house.
- Old Shame: The acting didn't work out too well for Don Scardino (Mick), but he's become a successful TV director, winner of two Emmys for Thirty Rock, where he's also a producer.
- Parody Retcon: Jeff Lieberman claimed the film was a "goof" movie and when Mystery Science Theater 3000 mocked it that "you can't goof a goof."
- Star-Derailing Role: The only film role for R.A. Dow (Roger) and Fran Higgins (Alma).
- What Could Have Been: Picture it, my friends: Kim Basinger as Geri. Martin Sheen as Mick. Sylvester friggin' Stallone as Roger. It very nearly happened. Allegedly.
