During a scene where Johnny (Anthony Michael Hall) is drumming, you can clearly see a Charlie Chaplin poster. Robert Downey, Jr. (Leo Wiggins) played Chaplin in Chaplin (1992). See more »
When Johnny is playing the drums during the credits, the Charlie Chaplin image on the poster in the background starts out looking to the right and Johnny's hi-hat cymbal is on the left. During subsequent shots back to this scene, the poster and the hi-hat cymbal reverse position several times (i.e., the image in the poster looks to the left then to the right, the hi-hat cymbal appears on the right and then on the left.).

I don't know why there are so many bad comments from people about this movie, I laugh through the entire movie. Robert Downey Jr. gives one his funniest performances I have ever seen as Hall's sidekick oddball friend and Anthony Michael Hall is surprisingly good at playing the "super-jock" role. Paul Gleason, the principal from The Breakfast Club, is hilarious as the high school coach trying to get a college job and Uma Thurman isn't bad as Hall's girlfriend. The best parts of the movie happen when Hall and Downey Jr. are interacting, and the joke they play on Gleason when he is home is so funny. Don't take this movie seriously, it's not intended to have any deep theoretical meaning; it's just supposed to make you laugh.
