The beach scenes were filmed at night at Westward Beach in Malibu. I was an extra in this film just after I graduated from Pepperdine. Everyone on the set who was in the flim industry said this was one of the funnest movies they had ever worked on. The whole cast mixed at meals and were very low key and outgoing. The producer was Frank Mancuso, Jr. who at the time was newly married. Dancing on the picnic table was really the highlight for me. Kind of strange in the middle of the night but it was a blast.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie.
