In very much a case of life immitating art, Joey Cramer appears to have literally disappeared off the face of the earth. He featured in "Stone Fox" in 1987 and was last seen in little known movie, "It's my Party", in the mid 90's. Who's to say, Max hasn't 'borrowed' him for research once again?

There is a heavy reference to ET: The Extra Terrestrial in one scene, when David has Max stop at a petrol station, so that he can 'phone home'.

Any doubt that the pair has made it back to Florida is dispelled when a minivan pulls into the station, and Max's ship is checked out by two kids wearing "Miami Vice" and "EPCOT Center" t-shirts.

The Spaceship from the film, Max, can now been found on the MGM Studios Backlot Tour at Walt Disney World, Orlando FL. Max is quite prominent and can now be seen as you board the train for the tour, and also part way round.

The music that plays when the kid first gets on the ship sounds a whole lot like the music that plays on Space Mountain, Anaheim. Also, the ship appears on the Space Mountain queue video. It appears during the scene, or comercial, where crazy Larry is hawking spaceships.
