Trivia

Child actress Ellen Latzen who plays Michelle was deliberately put in a dress and little girl's tights for her character's scenes with Alex P. Keaton's mall Santa by the costume department at the request of the producers who were mindful of the negative reaction and claims of gender ambiguity that had surrounded Latzen's character in the movie Fatal Attraction (1987) See more »
