The moving scene where Grandpa (Wilford Brimley) fishes with his grandson was apparently totally improvised after Brimley suggested to the Ron Howard that his character talk to the boy rather than the originally planned scene with no dialogue, just showing them fishing.

The night club scenes were filmed in the very popular & famous Tampa night club, of the mid 80's ...Confettti's
(listed as one of the top hottest nightclubs of the 80's).

Director Ron Howard, hand picked the professional dancers of the nightclub to be the back ground dancers in the movie.
