Jon Lovitz was forced to quit Saturday Night Live (1975) to work on this film. Originally the film was to be shot during the summer break between seasons, but when shooting overlapped for two weeks, Lorne Michaels told Lovitz he couldn't miss a single week on SNL, so he had to make a choice.

This movie is so unlikely, incredibly unrealistic, and completely pointless to watch if you're the 'serious,' type. I LOVE this movie! It's great for kids to watch, because it has a bit of everything: Costumes, humor, special effects, and of course, parents that save the world! Yes, this is a kind of movie that 'crack-heads,' will enjoy to watch. When I say, 'crack-heads,' I mean jumpy, hyper, childish, and imaginative people like myself. I highly recommend this film, if you happen to be any of the above! :)
