Corrected entry: In the scene where Rob Lowe takes his wife into the bar, the bow in the scarf tied round her head is on one side of her head in one shot and on the other side in the next shot.

Correction: Billy (Rob Lowe) never takes his wife to the bar. She brings a date to the bar (Whip Hubley), while he is performing with his band. Her black headband is knotted on her left side of her hair, and remains that way throughout the bar scene and during the fight scene outside the bar.

Continuity mistake: In the bar scene when Billy is playing the saxophone on stage, his wife enters the bar with her boyfriend. The saxophone music keeps playing after Billy starts glaring at them, even though Billy has stopped blowing air into the horn and is not pushing the horn's buttons.

Trivia: Ally Sheedy was mortified after learning that she had to perform a sex scene as she presumed that it would be offscreen and simply implied. Director Joel Schumacher convinced her to do it by agreeing to only shoot her and Andrew McCarthy from the neck up. Also the scene where she accidentally pushes the shower screen down was unscripted and McCarthy's laughing reaction was genuine.
