Director Boaz Davidson had the guys (Steve Antin, Lawrence Monoson & Joey Rubbo) watch the Lemon Popsicle over & over so they could get an idea of what he wanted for LAV: a cooler film that was more hip with the times.
The 3 guys became very good friends during the making of the film & to this day, they're still very close.

Rubbo ad-libbed a lot of his lines. A lot of people on the set called Rubbo John Belushi. He is currently a mortgage broker in Florida & has 3 daughters.
You can see Lawrence Monoson
(Gary) in the first season of "Star Trek: Enterprise" on an episode called "Fortunate Son" as a freighter officer.
Kimmie Robertson, who played Karen's best friend Rose, was 27 or 28 at the time of filming. She sure fooled me! She looked much younger than her age.
When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
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.

There are several versions of this movie. That feature either longer or shorter scenes: 1. A longer conversation with Earl during the locker scene with Gary and David as the guys are getting measured. 2. Full frontal nudity by Karen during the music segment as she was getting ready for her abortion. 3. A female employee was at the counter when the guys were getting crabs medicine. 4. The original televison version doesn't include the Gary talking to his boss and loading pizzas at the beginning. 5. Most recent TV versions butchered about 30 minutes worth of footage making the movie unwatchable.

The new MGM DVD of the film has been rescored slightly. The Human League's "Love Action" has been removed from the film. Originally heard in the hamburger joint when Rick demands Gary's Grandmother's keys, the scene now features Devo's "Whip It." The DVD cover does not indicate this change and the end credits still list "Love Action." However, it is definitely not present in the body of the film as it is presented on DVD. The song was included in theatrical prints, cable showings, and the previous VHS release of the film. Interestingly, the theatrical trailer, featured on the DVD contains the opening strains of "Love Action." It has been said that after the film's original release, Human League objected to their song being used in such a film; perhaps they were able to block its usage on the DVD of the film.

TBS furthers the already heavily cut TV version by shortening the "snorts" in the Sweet-N-Low sequence.

In the version of LAV shown on HBO and Cinemax, there's an extra scene where the horny guys pick up a pair of hotties only to discover beneath their tight, shiny pants they are guys!! It fits perfectly into the buffet of creepy sexual horrors.
