Sadly, Cathryn Damon, who played Kristy's mother, Gayle, never got to see the final cut of the film. On May 4th, 1987, Damon died of cancer; nine months before the movie's release.
Cameos from the following stars, suggesting baby names at the end. Dan Aykroyd, Kirstie Alley, Harry Anderson, Jay and Michael Astin, Matthew Broderick, John Candy, Dyan Cannon, Belinda Carlisle, Ted Danson, Woody Harrelson, Judi Evans, Robert Hays, "Magic" Johnson, Michael Keaton, Joanna Kerns, Penny Marshall, Bill Murray, Olivia Newton John, Roy Orbison, Cindy Pickett, Annie Potts, John Ratzenberger, Ally Sheedy, Lyman Ward, Wil Wheaton and Warren Zevon.
Also offering quite a comical suggestion of baby names (as movie credits roll) is actor Chris Young, who played in the 80's movie "The Great Outdoors" opposite the late John Candy. Years later, I found Chris in a "Friends" episode where Monica, Ross and Chandler get invited to go backstage and meet Hootie and the Blowfish.
Valerie Breiman, who plays Alec Baldwin’s sleazy girlfriend Erin, went on to write and direct the movie ‘Love And Sex’ with Jon Favreau and Famke Janssen.
