Originally the lead part was written to be an older, lonely storekeeper, with Dudley Moore in mind for the role, but when Andrew McCarthy came on board, the part was rewritten to be the part of a young artist.

In a recent interview, McCarthy recalled realizing what he had signed up for just before production started:

"And so I read it, and was like, Yeah, we can do this. And then right before we started shooting, I read it again, and I was like, What? What am I doing? This is a movie about a guy who falls in love with a mannequin! I told [my agent], I've got to get out of this movie. Theyíre like, You read it. It starts on Monday. Youíre not getting out of it.

Anyway, it actually works out fine, because itís a very sweet movie in many ways. Itís so uncynical, and so unhip and savvy. Thereís something about it thatís very pure. Itís lovely."

Hollywood's pink caddy was on loan from a classic car collector from Gettysburg Pa. Meshach Taylor, who played hollywood is a very friendly person. My sister and I sat in the pink caddy with him and talked to him for a few minutes just before they shot the scene because he overheard her from the crowd, which was watching the filming, saying she'd like to have one someday. All the extras were local to the Harrisburg area for the scene where McCarthy's girlfriend gets picked up in front of Illustra.
