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.

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.
