Trivia: In an interview, the director stated that hoverboards were real, but they weren't on the market because parents didn't like the idea of floating children. He said this as a joke, but this didn't stop mass hysteria as thousands of kids went from store to store looking for hoverboards.moviedude345
Trivia: The dead sailor harbouring a live crab, spooking Jammer out of his wits in the sunk submarine, is director James Cameron's younger brother Mike. The scene had to be shot several times to get it right, forcing Mike to hold the live crabs in his mouth, until the cry for "action", before releasing them. At one point he had to crush one with his teeth, as it gave him quite a bit of grief. Brotherly love immortalized.
Trivia: In one version of the script, Martin finds another videotape of his father Seth. This tape would show Seth (who is in his part-fly form) explaining the "cure". This scene would have required Jeff Goldblum to be in make-up for five hours, and he didn't want to go through that, so he dropped out, and the scene was cut from the script.
