The movie's music issues have been outlined by Wikipedia which states that "the film was notable for having a contemporary pop soundtrack, with music by artists like Blondie, Rickie Lee Jones, Supertramp, The Cars, and Iain Matthews. The original video release - on blue box VHS and laserdisc - kept the soundtrack intact, however, many songs in the film such as Supertramp's "School", John Lennon's "Oh My Love" and The Bellamy Brothers' "Let Your Love Flow" were removed from the second round of home releases - VHS red box - due to licensing issues, and were replaced with sound-alikes".

When did you lose your virginity? I just want to know.
Why? Now why do you want to know that? Curiosity? I know I must have been at least nineteen.
It was nothing. Still is nothing.
Marianne Gordon is listed in the credits as Mrs. Whitney. The actress filmed scenes as Ferris Whitney's (Tatum O'Neal) mother but her scenes were cut from the film. They gave her the credit as a courtesy! See more
