The title was changed to "Girls Of Summer" for the film's television debut, ostensibly to fool viewers who had already seen the film or perhaps because it was a dud at the box-office. The Turner Classic Movies website states that the film was "retitled 'Girls of Summer' for early 1991 network broadcast". Around the time the film premiered on television, Julia Roberts had already become a breakout star in the film Pretty Woman (1990). NBC would capitalize on this in their ads proclaiming, "Before she was a pretty woman, she was one of the Girls of Summer".

The movie's title is taken from the name of the classic song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones. The track plays during the opening of the movie, but none of its use in the film is from any original Stones recordings for the song, which was written by Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The song on the film's soundtrack is performed only by "Jennie Lee & The Mystery" (a.k.a. "Justine Bateman & The Mystery").
