The film was shot on location in Newberry Springs, California where the temperature peeked at 130 degrees. It was so hot the equipment started melting. Also, while shooting one of the last shots of the movie, Fred Savage tossed his leading lady, (Alison Moir), over his shoulder, then tumbled to the ground needing 4 stitches in his elbow. The toss wasn't in the script. See more »
A fun story where fantasy meets reality for a young man asserting his independence. Great to see Fred Savage again. He may have sideburns now, but he's still got that boyish charm and innocence - no doubt frustrating to an actor trying to break the mold. This film has a good tongue-in-cheek attitude throughout. It doesn't pretend to be more than a modern day fable, and delivers on its promise. Aussie actress Allison Moir is an interesting find and is remniscent of a young Jane Seymour. Disappointingly, she doesn't have anything credited after this. Definitely worth a look. The pacing is good and the story holds throughout. My only gripe - the ending seemed forced. I saw this on a compilation DVD - "Short" #2, which is good value, considering you get 6 films for the price of one.
