The "Boulder Free Zone" was originally to be filmed in Boulder, Colorado. However, soon before production was to begin, Colorado passed Amendment 2, an amendment to their state Constitution which nullified any existing laws protecting the rights of homosexuals. In protest, the production moved to Utah. (Stephen King's daughter Naomi is a lesbian.) This amendment was later overturned in the case of Romer v. Evans.

The bottle of Pepto Bismol that Nick sets on the bench disappears when Tom stands up.
The version most widely seen now on DVD and Blu-ray differs from the original TV broadcast and Worldvision home video release. Among numerous small changes to credits and transitions (for instance removing many of the fades to black for commercial), it also restores explicit footage to two scenes and adds a third altogether.
