Footage from the film's premiere was in an episode of Julie Brown's MTV sitcom, "Just Say Julie". This episode is featured on "The Best of Just Say Julie, Vol. 1." DVD at Julie Brown's official website.
Geena Davis's character's name "Valerie Gail" is a play on the term "Valley Girl" since the film is set in the Valley of Los Angeles, California.
The screenplay was co-written by Julie Brown, who also starred in the film and wrote and sang a few tracks on the soundtrack.
On the DVD, several deleted and extended scenes can be found:
An extension of "The Goldfish Eating" scene and an extension of Valerie's nightmare.
While cruising through the Valley, Mac, Wiploc and Zeebo notice an ad for Wayne Newton's show in Las Vegas, and ask if he is Earth's God. While Valerie and Candy say no (Candy saying that her mother listens to Newton), this joke carries through to the next deleted scene, where...
The car stops in at a drive-through/Bob's Big Boy type of restaurant. After the aliens think that the creation on top of the building, Valerie and Candy order some food. To take the food, Mac demonstrates an example of his biological peculiarities, which excites the ladies to no end.
You'll notice that on the radio, Julie Brown's song "I Like 'Em Big And Stupid" is playing. In one of the movie's first cuts, Julie sang that song on-screen as we saw more footage of Mac, Wiploc and Zeebo trying to ingratiate themselves with those ubiquitous Earth girls. That scene still survives on the DVD, in the Karaoke section. [Thanks to John Edward Kilduff]
