Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sue-Ellen has just come home from work, she places her pocketbook on the kitchen island. In the next scene the secretary is going through Sue-Ellen's office and finds her pocketbook and goes through it. How can that be if Sue-Ellen brought it home with her? (01:17:15 - 01:19:35)
Trivia: The house in the film was actually a very nice-looking and well-kept house in a wealthy area. It was purposefully trashed and "dumbed down" to look like a run-down "poor family" house just for the film.
Bryan: I'd respect your privacy more if you weren't so secretive.
Sue Ellen "Swell" Crandell: Well I'd tell you more if you didn't want to know so much.
Kenny Crandell: Don't you ever go outside?
Walter Crandell: Nope, no TV, and no prizes.
Bryan: Not exactly your dream job, eh?
Sue Ellen "Swell" Crandell: Got that right. You think I woke up this morning and said, 'Gee, I'd love to scrub fat vats! I'd love to smile and work with raw meat'?
Question: Who played Cynthia, Zach's girlfriend that he used the stolen petty cash to buy a necklace for? Nowhere in the film credits or on-line is the character or the actress listed.
Question: When Sue Ellen is shown heading to work, wouldn't she be headed into the city, since Kenny says they live in "the boonies"? But she is shown leaving the city, envying the group of teens in the car next to her, who appear to be headed to the beach (also leaving the city).
