Edit
Trivia The tight budget imposed by 20th Century Fox, meant the leads had to accept deferred payments for making this movie. Bill Cosby (Mother) and Harvey Keitel (Speed) agreed to the deferred money. The producers wanted Valerie Perrine to play "Jugs", but she wouldn't defer any money. Raquel Welch wanted the part badly, and would work for deferred money, so she was cast instead. See more »
