Part of the filming was done at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX and some scenes were shot in the downtown area. See more »
The story begins on Thursday, August 28, 1980 and follows the characters through the weekend leading up to the first day of classes on Monday. However, Monday, September 1, 1980 was Labor Day and most schools would have been closed on that holiday. Since S.T.U. is a fictional school, it could be said to be an exception, but none of the characters even mention the holiday so it seems like an oversight goof. See more »

The closing credits have a rap by all team members halfway through the credits. They show the whole Sound Machine set and some backstage areas. See more »
This was put together in an entertaining fashion. Trouble for me is that I'd walk a mile to avoid the kind of people the film is about. Always did, when I was younger, avoid the bullying sexist jock and unless you are enamoured, you may not want some of a film that celebrates them off the Richter scale.
There is also the fact that in this Mudville there are only shiny happy people out of Hollywood wardrobe department and there's little resemblance to reality.
That shouldn't stop those who want college and youth myths big on All American ball-whacking, drinking, weed-smoking, look-how-crazy-we-all-are high spirits. There will be lots of people who want some of that.
