After 4 viewings I finally realized that the girls "business" was antics. That's how he met the girl, at an antic show. She must have had a booth there. At least, that's what I'm thinking happened.

We had that exact station wagon when I was a kid. Not one like it. That exact model. My dad kept it for a long time, too. At the end of it's life, we painted it ourselves! With fluorescent blue paint. OMG it was the ugliest car on the block. It lasted long enough that I learned to drive on it. It had a 389cc V-8 engine in it. Boy was I the envy of my friends when this big fluorescent V-8 came chugging up the block!

Do you think "A Case of Spring Fever" was the inspiration for "Zinc Oxide and You" from "Kentucky Fired Movie"? That was my favorite sketch.

At about 7:53 (right after the Billy Barty line) Crow moves his mouth but doesn't say anything. This makes me wonder: What was it he said? And how many riffs have had to be taken out post-production? Anybody notice other instances of this?

You can tell that writer/director Jeff Lieberman isn't from the south because the female lead's mom says "it might get up to 90 today" as if that's supposed to be really hot.

Something that stands out for me here is the weird little sub-plot about Mick's wet clothes. First of all, why does the girl offer to lend him dry clothes? Did he only pack one outfit? And secondly, why does he decide against changing? Were they in a hurry or something? It would be one thing if they just forgot to have him change, but we see him actively deciding to put off changing until after they go on what appears to be a light errand.

I stayed up late and saw this on TV on night as a kid and I was absolutely traumatized by it. Of course they cut the scene that traumatized me, where Roger gets attacked by the worms. Still, many years later this movie just looks so stupid to me. Oh how I have lost my innocence!

When I was little I watched a made-for-TV movie about killer worms that was pretty similar to this; I remember in one scene the worms hid in an empty gardener's glove and when he put the gloves on again they ate his hands. So now I have this compulsion to check my gloves and boots before I garden. I think there was a sequel with giant killer lobsters. Anyone know what movies I'm talking about?
