More Movie Taglines:

- Cop: Hey kid. Why do you wear sunglasses at night? Vince Latello: Because when you're cool, the sun shine on you 24 hours a day.
Detective Nulty: What's your name, cowboy? Bob Roberts: Robert Roberts, Esquire to you, honky!

- When science teacher Bob Roberts (Dennis Hopper) returns from the 1960s, he's wearing the same costume that Hopper wore when he played Billy in Easy Rider (1969).
In a scene where John Stockwell's character is under his car fixing it, Fisher Stevens says to him: "Ya know, I seen this movie where this haunted car flames guys out.", referring to John Carpenter's Christine (1983) in which Stockwell had a major role.
According to CINEFANTASTIQUE Magazine, alien puppets were made for the opening sequence, but were scrapped.
SPOILER: At the end of the closing credits, Fisher Stevens' freeze-frame, "Hi mom" police photo gives the illusion of movement, with the sound effect of the gizmo causing a time surge.
