Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Adaptation Displacement - did you know this was based on a semi-nonfiction book?
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: See Spicoli. See Spicoli try to think. See Spicoli get a pizza delivered to him in history class.
  • Everybody Remembers the Stripper: Quick, what's the first thing you remember from this movie? Judge Reinhold getting fired from his job? The gas station robbery scene? Bullshit. You remember Phoebe Cates removing her top. Don't even try to deny it.
    • The story goes that video stores' copies of the VHS tape broke from having that scene re-wound and played over and over and over again.
    • Thanks to this film, there is an entire generation of men who can't hear "Moving in Stereo" by The Cars without thinking of Phoebe Cates' boobs.
    • Actually, I remember the robbery scene at the end when you bring this film up.
    • I thought of Spicoli ordering pizza...
      • Me too, since the first time I saw that in high school I wanted to do that just once before I graduated.
    • I thought of Damone singing Cheap Trick songs.
    • Also, Jennifer Jason Leigh completely naked. Yes, please.
