The parents of lead actor (River Phoenix
) asked director (William Richert
) to remove a line by character Joyce Fickett in which she states to Jimmy Reardon; "Jimmy, I want to fuck you", fearing that it would affect their 16 year old sons relationship with his tween fan base. Richert refused to remove it completely but muted the line instead. See more
Al? Al Reardon? My father. My moral, upright, coffee sluping, status seeking, putting in overtime, hard day at the office, early rising, early bedding, make your own way in life father, had been screwing Joyce Fickett! that balding man with responsibilities was an extramarital joy-boy! no wonder i was having so much trouble! It was hereditary!
