This film was once falsely rumored to be the final installment in the Dirty Harry (1971) series.

When Walt touches the little girl's head, the Hmong react very negatively, and Sue tells him that is wrong. Several scenes earlier, Kho Khue patted the baby's head, and no one reacted. Certain elders have the right to touch people on the head, including an elder shaman performing a soul-calling ceremony during a birth celebration. Also, when Sue musses Thao's hair in the back yard, she musses the side of his head, behind his ear, not the top.
The credits scroll over a highway overlooking the lake shore, with the Warner Logo appearing in black and white.
