Mark Hamill said of this movie around the time of production: "I insisted on looking different. And I'm only interested in the car, not even any girl, until Annie Potts came along. . . It's not a car movie. It's really a love story. And I'm so thrilled to be working with Annie Potts. She reminds me of Judy Holliday. She's a unique creature." Hamill years after the film first came out then said: "Corvette Summer is a great little picture and it's got sort of a title that's a misnomer because you sort of put it in one category when you first see it and you go, 'Oh gee, it's quite a nicely written, uh romantic movie.' And I enjoyed it immensely." See more »
The high school teacher congratulates students for studying, claiming most of them ended up on plus side of "bell curve" following recent test; but there is no way a majority of them could wind up either side (plus or minus) because a bell curve is a graphic way of demonstrating the norm (in this case, test scores) in the middle, with upper or lower scores trailing off equally on either side - hence the "bell" designation.

If you are a Star Wars fan, it is interesting to see Mark Hamill in this movie, second only to The Big Red One as non Star Wars performances go.
Annie Potts of Ghostbusters and Designing Women fame is great. I personally have nothing against Hamill and would like to see him do more movies and choose better scripts. Look for this film from the same creative team as Dragonslayer (another underrated film, which Ally McBeal fans should seek to see Peter MacNichol in a slightly different light).
It is well worth it. It won't change your life, but it's not a rip-off. It's good summer fun.
