There are several homages to the original 1956 film this move is based upon. At a movie theater there is a poster for the original movie. After the girls leave town they stop at a gas station. The company name over the gas pump is "American International" Petroleum. This name and the company's logo is identical to the company that released the original film.
Jimmy at one point demands a character "Quit crowdin' me." This is a line said repeatedly by the protagonist of the B-movie Speed Crazy (1959), clips of which are heavily featured in Joe Dante and Jon Davison's The Movie Orgy (1968).
