In the opening shopping montage, the Master Card shown in closeup is actually the real card of the film's co-writer Wayne Crawford. In addition, the info on the card swiper reveals that it is not the Sherman Oaks Galleria, but the Wet Seal store in Torrance, California, substituting for the Galleria due to budget restrictions.

Throughout the party scene, there are instances of kids being in more than one place at a time, depending on the camera view. For example, a brown-haired boy in a gray sweater vest is shown dancing; when the camera view changes, however, he is standing (and not dancing) in a different part of the room. See more »

Everyone has a great list of cinematic guilty pleasures, and "Valley Girl" has been on mine from the first time I saw it. It was clear from the first "valley view" of the San Fernando that it was several cuts above your average teen-aimed movie. Obviously, Nicolas Cage was pretty impressive, even if I had no idea of his heritage or his future. I liked Deborah Foreman, too, and the supporting cast was well-chosen. If the plot was trifling, it was at least clever and certainly not pretentious. And the music, from the opening by Foremen and her friends to the closing shot of the limo ride to Modern English's "I Melt With You," is a big plus. Overall, an very entertaining take on love across the valley of cultural differences from Martha Coolidge, who is one of our most underrated directors.
