Trivia

When this film premiered at the 1986 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, reels 3 and 4 were sequentially reversed by Sundance staffer and IATSE projectionist David Nelson. Most critics and viewers said that they didn't notice the mistake in what they called an otherwise disappointing film. One of the film's makers demanded that the incomplete premiere be stopped and it wasn't rescheduled, the only such film in festival history to do so.
Writer David Himmelstein said that one day, he saw a row of television monitors playing political commercials for different candidates. He said the spots all looked the same to him, so he did research to find out why and what he discovered he put into the script.
Burt Reynolds was the first choice for the lead. He was not able to perform in the movie because of injuries he suffered on the set of City Heat (1984).
