Did You Know?
An early draft of the script has no mention of Sara's fascination with Thor. What is included instead is a scene at Soldier Field with The Chicago Bears Players
stars Jim McMahon
, Walter Payton
, William Perry
, and Mike Singletary
, who invite the team members to come to the Anderson House to watch The Mummy's Curse
(1944). When they finally leave, Daryl smuggles out several of the team's jockstraps as souvenirs. The jockstraps later are used to make up the shortage of cash needed to get the station wagon out of (Miss) Dawson's garage. None of the Chicago Bears appear in the film, and the girl at the frat party mentions them briefly. See more
When Sara goes up in the elevator at her parents' building there are chocolate fingerprints on two of the numbered floor buttons. She ends up at the higher floor which is still under construction going right past the floor where her parents' party is. The elevator doors should have opened at the lower number floor first and seeing the party going on, she would have gotten off there and wouldn't have continued going up. See more
