Movie Quote(s):
  • Ray Peterson: Remember what you were saying about people in the 'burbs, Art, people like Skip, people who mow their lawn for the 800th time, and then SNAP? WELL, THAT'S US. IT'S NOT THEM, THAT'S US. WE'RE the ones who are vaulting over the fences, and peeking in through people's windows. We're the ones who are THROWING GARBAGE IN THE STREET, AND LIGHTING FIRES. WE'RE THE ONES WHO ARE ACTING SUSPICIOUS AND PARANOID, ART. WE'RE THE LUNATICS. US. IT'S NOT THEM. It's us. Art Wiengartner: [after a pause] I don't know what to say... What, do you want me to move?
Movie Trivia:
  • When Ray and Art break into Walter's house, a picture of Walter and (Gale Gordon) Lucille Ball is on the table. Ball and Gordon co-starred in the 1948 radio show "My Favorite Husband" and TV's "The Lucy Show" (1962), "Here's Lucy" (1968), and "Life with Lucy" (1986).
  • The Klopeks named the dog "Landru", probably after Henri Landru, a notorious French serial killer.
  • Early in the movie, when Cory Danziger is eating breakfast, a box of Gremlins cereal can be seen on the kitchen counter in the background. Director Joe Dante also directed Gremlins (1984) and Corey Feldman was in Gremlins (1984).
  • In the Klopek basement there is a sled with the name Rosebud - a reference to Citizen Kane (1941).
  • Prop master Mark Jameson was charged with making fake dog poop when the actors complained that they didn't want to step in the real thing. He made a mixture of canned dog food, bean dip, and other items. It was loaded into caulking tubes and squeezed out where needed.
