Trivia The cabin in Ontario, Big Bear Lake is the same filming location as Dr. Falken's house in WarGames (1983). See more »
Goofs The geography of the drive from South Bend to Detroit to Canada is very flat and rural. The film shows huge mountains, lakes, and forests, none of which are present in northern Indiana and southern Michigan, which are about as flat as any place can be, and full of farms. Also, southern Ontario looks nothing like Big Bear, where the cabin scenes were filmed. See more »

Quotes [Pulling on Jason's nipple ring to get information about where Dedee and Matt are]
Jason Bock: Ow, that's pierced! Ow!
Bill Truitt: Listen to me, you little grunge faggot. I survived my family, my schoolyard, every Republican, every other Democrat, Anita Bryant, the Pope, the fucking Christian Coalition, not to mention a real son of a bitch of a virus, in case you haven't noticed. In all that time since Paul Lynde and Truman Capote were the only fairies in America, I've been busting my ass so that you'd be able to do what you wanted with yours! So I don't just want your obedience right now - which I do want and plenty of it - but I want your fucking gratitude, right fucking now, or you're going to be looking down a long road at your nipple in the dirt! Do you hear what I'm saying?
Jason Bock: Yes!
Bill Truitt: Take me to them!
Jason Bock: OK, fine, just let me go! Let me go!
[Bill lets go]
Jason Bock: Ow, ow, ow, fuck! Jesus. You're supposed to be my brother, man!
Bill Truitt: Hey, I *was* brotherly, man. Think where else you're pierced. Let's go.
