Julie, a girl from the valley, meets Randy, a punk from the city. They are from different worlds and find love. Somehow they need to stay together in spite of her trendy, shallow friends.
Julie's parents are played by Colleen Camp and Frederic Forrest. The two also appeared together in Apocalypse Now (1979) where Forrest was a soldier and Camp (who was friends with real life Playboy playmate Dorothy Stratten) was a Playmate sent to entertain the troops.
Why can't you just punish me like Stacey's parents?
Sarah Richman: Bad karma, dear!
When the driver's ed teacher jumps out of the car, the door audibly slams shut behind him. When Julie parks the car afterwards, however, the front passenger side door is open.
Originally, Men At Work's "Who Can It Be Now?" was played during the scene where Randy climbs into the upstairs bathroom through the window and hides in the shower, hoping that Julie will eventually come into the bathroom. In the Special Edition DVD, "Shelley's Boyfriend" by Bonnie Hayes and the Wild Combo continues playing from the previous scene, replacing the Men At Work tune.
