With cast and crew set, production on the film was set for early April 1987. The spring date ruled out the possibility of shooting on location in Wisconsin, since the script called for wintry scenes. Production Designer William J. Cassidy was forced to scout cities further to the north, looking for a town with the best likelihood of snow that could double for small-town Wisconsin. The decision was made to film in Winnipeg in Canada. See more »
This movie is for keeps! Not only is it insightful and informative about abortion and STDs, but it reminded me of how many movies from the 1980's suffered from Molly Ringwald's absence. Case in point: St. Elmo's Fire. Another example: Little Darlings. She might not have added that mystical Jean Seberg / Bea Arthur element, but she's a fresh reminder that Hollywood's sometimes takes a chance on otherwise ordinary people that have a spark in their soul. Bravo, Molly!
