Trivia

At a screening in San Francisco, director Bo Burnham said he originally intended for all the young characters to communicate with one another over Facebook. When his star, Elsie Fisher, saw his script, however, she said, "No one uses Facebook." He then made that a line in the movie and had the characters use Instagram and Snapchat instead.

Many reviewers likened and compared this movie to the John Hughes teen comedies of the 1980s (for example, the New Yorker's Naomi Fry, the Chicago Tribune's Heidi Stevens, Newsweek's Anna Menta, and even Molly Ringwald, the star of many of those Hughes films). Coincidentally, the actor who plays Gabe, Jake Ryan, shares his name with the main male character of Hughes's Sixteen Candles.
