Did You Know?

The original director was Terry Winsor who had only one film to his credit, Party Party (1983). He was replaced by Paul Aaron who was so unhappy with the final film that he asked for the Alan Smithee credit.See more »
Plot holes: When Morgan asks Emily on a date he agrees to pick her up, yet she never gives him her home address. She doesn't give him her phone number until later in the movie when she writes it on his hand, so he couldn't have called her to get the address before the first date.See more »
Morgan Stewart:Look, Doc, okay? I'm gonna level with ya. Okay, I have been doing drugs.
Dr. Cabot:I understand. I'm glad you told me, Morgan. For your sake I'm glad. Now, exactly what kind of drugs?
Morgan Stewart:I've been free-basing Clearasil.

I know Jon Cryer was getting a little annoyed in the 80's, when he was being called Matthew Broderick's clone. Jon Cryer has his own cool charm, thats very different Matthew Broderick. And who ever called this movie a Ferris Bueller rip off, really did'nt see this movie, and tried to figure out that this movie is very different from Ferris Bueller. Okay someone copied John Hughes film making style, and did pretty well. This movie was very funny, and it was fun to watch. So give it a break.
