Nicolas Cage lied about his age so that he could get a bigger part, but the producers found out that he was only 17. See more »
When Damon takes Rat to get Stacie's number, the camera shows a quick shot from far away of Stacie leaning over the counter next to the cashier. Stacie's hair clearly has a braid running down the side. But as soon as Rat comes up to talk to her, her hair simply has been pulled back by barrettes. Her hair style is clearly different. See more »
This movie is one of my all time 80s favorites. All kinds of stars in this one. Totally depicts high school teens in the early 80s Fur Shure! Lots of comedy - little bit of drama - whole lot of sex. Sean Penn as the stoner surfer dude is the funniest role in his career. Phoebe Cates , was just becoming a known star. Jennifer Jason Leigh totally looks her part as a teen virgin and you can also see Nancy Wilson (guitarist of the band HEART) here in her tiny cameo role. Love this early 80s classic.Own it.Learn it. Live it...
