Some Kind of Wonderful

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eric Stoltz's character, Keith, fresh out of the shower, is confronted by his father about the college money, he has two distinct hairstyles. These two hairstyles show up again at Hardy's house party.

Continuity mistake: When Hardy is giving Keith a hard time at the gas station by dropping the money on the ground, Keith picks it up, then all of a sudden the shot zooms in and Keith is holding the engine dip stick.

William Bergquist

Trivia: The role of Keith Nelson was written for Eric Stoltz.

Trivia: John Hughes wrote the role of Amanda Jones for specifically Molly Ringwald to play. When she refused, Lea Thompson picked up the role but Hughes has now refused to work with Ringwald because she turned the film down.


Watts: Because I'm driving you crazy and you're driving me crazy and I'd rather not see you and have you think good things about me than have you see me and hate me. 'Cause I can't afford to have you hate me, Keith. The only things I care about in this goddamn life are me and my drums and you.

Ray: So you gotta hang around for an hour?
Watts: If I feel like it.
Ray: You know how much damage we could do to each other in an hour?
Watts: It's kind of a revolting thought, actually.
Ray: Really? What's revolting mean?
Watts: Oh, God. Get your hands off me, man.
Ray: Does that mean you wanna come over?

Amanda Jones: - You think I used you?
Keith: - Didn't you?
Amanda Jones: - I don't know... in a way.
Keith: - In a way? Amanda, there's only one you use someone - you either do or you don't.
Amanda Jones: - And you didn't use me? God, you hypocrite! What's hanging in that museum, huh? My soul? No, it's my face. You're using me to pay back every guy with more money and more power than you. Paint it in any colour you want. It's still you using me.
