Jealous, harried air traffic controller Max Fiedler, recently dumped by his girlfriend, comes into contact with nuclear waste and is granted the power of telekinesis, which he uses not only to win her back, but to gain a little revenge.
The make and model of the new car that Max Fiedler (Chevy Chase) drove throughout the movie was a 1981 Lancia Beta Coupé.
Max, please, what is the matter with you lately? I was kidding.
Max Fielder: Look at my face. I can't go to dinner like this. Look.
Darcy: Your face looks fine.
Max Fielder: I'm not going. I'm staying up here.
Darcy: Max. Max, you promised me that you would try to relax and be close to me...
When Max tells Lorraine that Darcy is also at the club, she responds "shoot," but her mouth is clearly saying a more explicit, four-letter word.
Alternate takes (without audio) are shown of the main characters during the end credits.
