When Jimmy, Corey & Haley are hustling the teenagers at the restaurant, it shows the game Jimmy is playing as F-1 Dream. In reality, the actual game Jimmy is playing is Full Throttle (1987), although F-1 Dream is also a real game. See more »
When Sam is driving down the highway right before he gets his tires slashed, the tree in the back of his truck has few or no leaves. When he runs out of the restaurant later to see his tires slashed, the tree is full of bright green leaves. See more »
It's like the Adventures of Link. He has to find Zelda, you have to find a house. Same difference!
Boy, is THAT sexist.

This movie first aired in 1989, when Fred Savage was boy wonder and on top of the world and when Jenny Lewis was every young girl's dream. A lot of people say this movie was a commercial for Nintendo but really it wasn't........it was a movie for everyone that has a lost a loved one, for people who have been traumatized, and for people all around the world. The movie shows us that anyone can achieve their goal if they only believe.
