- When the movie was edited for TV, Alicia Silverstone's character's name changed from Darian to Adrian. Screenwriter Alan Shapiro had based the film on actual events that happened to him and ended up being sued by the girl he wrote about, who had the same name as his "fictional" character.
Although the main character's name is changed in the second version of the film including in the end credits, "Darian" (the original name) still appears on the letters she sends to Nick at the end of the film.
Alicia Silverstone became an "emancipated minor" at age 15 during the shooting of the film meaning she was legally on her own and not a dependent of her parents. This way she could avoid child labor laws, which would have restricted how many hours she could work on the film.
The film's theatrical release in 1993 contained Alicia Silverstone's original character name Darian. Movie trailers, VHS and laserdisc versions also kept the name Darian. DVD and cable television versions were later dubbed and credited as Adrian. In the past, early cable television aired the name Darian.
The name Adrian was dubbed. The dubbing was done by unknown actors because the studio could not afford to bring back the original actors, which explains the slight voice differentiation. Some words preceding the name Adrian were also dubbed for a more unnoticeable voice transition.
