The science class's pet tarantula is named "Leo G.", a reference to Leo G. Carroll, star of Tarantula (1955). (Also, the school is called Waverly, which was Carroll's character's name in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E".) See more »

Star Kid is a typical 'loser kid' who gets back at everyone and in the end is respected and loved giving all the nerds and losers hope that one day this could happen to them and make their lives so much easier. Wouldn't that be nice? Such is the case in this film starring no one you or me will ever hear of until a major blockbuster film comes out in which they play a minor role and eventually make their way to the top. This story has a bit of a twist to the usual tale, the 'bully' teams up with the 'loser' and they together save mankind. The humor is kiddie and not very often funny. But, the plot is well constructed and fine by my standards.
