Fun fact: Renna, who delivered the film's most iconic line ("You're killin' me, Smalls!), was actually the last kid to be cast. "It was literally the day everybody was getting on a plane to Salt Lake City and we still didn't have a Ham," director David Mickey Evans told Sports Illustrated. "[Pat] came in and read and I said, 'You're in...and you've got to make a plane, kid.'"

Fun fact: Right before filming the CPR scene with Wendy Peffercorn, Evans told Leopardi, who was only around 10 years old at the time, "You keep your tongue in your mouth, understand?" He did — BUT THEN HE ASKED TO RESHOOT THE SCENE. 💋
