Did You Know?


The song which Judd Nelson (Bender) hums the guitar riff to at the beginning of the movie is the opening of "Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream. Cream's song "Badge" also features in Fandango (1985). Nelson also starred in this movie.


John Bender: Stupid, worthless, no good, goddamn, freeloading son of a bitch. Retarded, big mouth, know-it-all, asshole, jerk.
John Bender: You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful.
John Bender: Shut up bitch! Go fix me a turkey pot pie.
John Bender: No dad, what about you?
John Bender: Fuck you.
John Bender: No dad, what ...
John Bender: ...


When Bender is looking through Claire's stuff, he brushes his teeth with a makeup brush while looking in a pocket mirror. He puts down the brush on the table and looks in the mirror. He then sets the mirror on the table before tossing the brush onto the table a second time.

Crazy Credits

Opens with the following which then explodes from the screen. "And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they are quite aware of what they are going through." -David Bowie

Alternate Versions

Australian and UK television versions are completely intact, with no scenes edited or deleted: older UK versions dub or omit the 'f' word, but more recent prints remain intact; the Australian version made no such changes, retaining an unaltered and unedited soundtrack (but is usually shown a little later in the evenings because of this).
