Did ya Notice?, Trivia About Various Eighties Movies, Movies Beginning with A
This is just a simple list of various trivial items about eighties movies.
Feel free to send me additions you think would be interesting. I'm not
really looking for goofs in particular, although I'll add them if they're
fairly interesting and not overly trivial.

American Werewolf in London
At the very end of the credits in the regular disclaimer about the movie being fictitious, it says, "any similarities to persons alive or dead or undead is purely coincidental". Very funny if you remember that the werewolf's victims walk the earth as the "undead".
In the movie theatre scene, where the hero encounters his dead friend and all of his victims, the title on the marquee outside is "See you next Wednesday", a tribute by director John Landis to his idol George Lucas. This is referring to a line in Lucas' "2001, A Space Odyssey" (a throw-away line found in the space shuttle scene by one of the characters talking to his young daughter on a space phone), which Landis has managed to work into all of his films via posters on walls, graffiti in pay phones, etc.
Not really but and oversight on the editing. John Candy and the cowboy trucker bust through the traffic jam busting out the headlight and grill on the semi. In the next scene as they turn the corner the truck is magically repaired.
