Trivia: The Smithereens were commissioned by Cameron Crowe to write the theme song for the movie, and they came up with "A Girl Like You." Crowe thought that the lyrics were too leading (they outline the entire plot), so he rejected it in favor of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes." "A Girl Like You" went on to be included in the Smithereen's next album, "11."

Trivia: Kirk Cameron was nearly cast as Lloyd instead of John Cusack.

Trivia: Christian Slater, Peter Berg, Kirk Cameron, Robert Downey Jr and Loren Dean all auditioned for the role of Lloyd Dobler. John Cusack was cast instead and Loren Dean was cast as Joe, a smaller supporting role.

Continuity mistake: Right after Lloyd gets his nose broken while kickboxing, Diane begs him to take her back. As they converse, the string of drying blood under Lloyd's nose changes from being to the right of his nostril to directly under it.
