Random Trivia For This Title:

  • For the scene with the bathtub falling two floors down after being filled with water, Tom Hanks does a obnoxious laugh. This clip of him laughing is commonly used for the Universal back-lot tour when the tour guides joke with the visitors.
  • The film was intended to be one of Universal's tent pole movies for Christmas 1985, but the film was pushed back to March of 1986.
