Trivia

Michelle Pfeiffer was pregnant during production. Although shot out of sequence like most films, it becomes apparent when methods are used to hide the actress' stomach. Methods such as long skirts and bulky sweaters along with scenes where Pfeiffer is shown carrying large objects were used.
Andy Garcia's scenes as Louanne's love interest were filmed but cut.
Originally entitled "My Posse Don't Do Homework", the name of the book from which this true story was taken.
A running gag involves confusion between two lyrical men of words: Dylan Thomas and Bob Dylan. The similarity between the two names is not coincidental, as the latter adopted his performance name as a tribute to the former.
Released under Michelle Pfeiffer's production company, the movie's success bolstered Pfeiffer's reputation as an actress/producer.
One of the last films worked on by producer Don Simpson. He helped pick songs for the film soundtrack.

"This Is The Life", is a song that features on the film's original soundtrack, and is performed by 'Wendy And Lisa' In the 1980's, both of these artists were from Prince's band 'The Revolution', and even acted alongside him, in his movie, "Purple Rain". If you listen carefully to the music for "This is The Life" and "Purple Rain", you will notice, that they both have exactly the same music in their intro.
