The library scene was filmed at Hollywood High School. The building is an example of the art deco period and the mural seen above the actors was completed in 1939. See more »
Jessica thinks she's blown the interview and rips open her shirt, she then runs out of the office holding her shirt closed with Marlon only a few seconds behind her. However when Marlon catches up to her, the shirt is perfectly buttoned up even though she didn't have any time to button up. See more »
People choose colleges for all kinds of idiotic reasons, like fraternities and Slavic language departments.

Good light entertainment that never quite passed into the mainstream, despite featuring several performers who later became better-known: Anthony Edwards before he lost his hair and became a famous TV doc, Corey Parker before he became a caricature of himself, and Lara Flynn Boyle before she became a skeleton. A lightweight and quirky farce about the college admissions process, this bit of fluff also has a really nice heart, plus fun performances by Finn Carter as Edwards's true love and Chris Rydell as Parker's ultracool best friend.
