My Science Project Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Rewind ArchiveWhen science teacher Bob Roberts (Dennis Hopper) returns from the 1960s, he's wearing the same costume that Hopper wore when he played Billy in "Easy Rider" (1969).
Thanks to R. BurkeHarlan's car was a 1968 Pontiac GTO
Rewind ArchiveIn a scene where John Stockwell's character is under his car fixing it, Fisher Stevens says to him: "Once I saw a film about a car that killed people" referring to John Carpenter's Christine (1983) in which Stockwell co-starred with Keith Gordon. He is also to be seen as 'Cougar' in the opening scenes of "Top Gun"
Thanks to Chad WichtermanThe title song My Science Project for the movie is performed by the rock group The Tubes. I think they even did one other song in the movie.
Thanks to Nick SpringsteenThis was the first Disney funded film to feature the 'F' word, (as spoken by Fisher Stevens'). It has now been therefore cut from all available versions.
Thanks to Ordie55Towards the end of the movie when three students enter the school to save it they are walking through smoke filled halls. During this time they come upon a crashed plane in the Jungle (in Vietnam) and several "Viet Cong" come through the door and capture the pilot. The aircraft appears to be an A-4 Skyhawk. The Squadron Insignia seen under the cockpit is that of the VA-155 Silver Foxes and the phrase on the banner next to it is "Death From Above".
For historical accuracy purposes this aircraft has "Tigers Teeth" on it and I know of no aircraft ever flown by the Silver Foxes that had this paint scheme. Also the A-4 was flown fairly early in the war and all the Vietnamese are carrying the M-16. At this time that surely would not have been the standard for a Viet Cong.
I also always wondered why the pilot took off running after they knocked out all the Viet Cong? Surely not the teaching of survival & evasion school!
Thanks to FrankEllie (Danielle von Zerneck) also played Donna in LaBamba
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "My Science Project".
