As an outdoor scene was being filmed, a man drove by and yelled, "Jane, you ignorant slut!" in reference to Curtin and Dan Aykroyd's "Point/Counterpoint" on Saturday Night Live, and the crew cracked up laughing.

The Valley River Center, where the film's "mall scenes" are set, is indeed a thriving part of Eugene, OR, culture. However, the story is set during the commemoration of the "first anniversary of the Valley River Center." In actuality though, the Valley River Center had already been open for ten years as of the filming of this movie.
