Ehren Kruger wrote the script, which won the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' (AMPAS) Nicholl Fellowship in 1996. The film was to have been originally released by PolyGram Filmed Entertainment, but the film's United States distribution rights were sold to Sony Pictures Entertainment for $6 million. The eventual release was the second title for Screen Gems while PolyGram (now part of Universal Studios) handled foreign rights. Tomandandy composed additional music in the film. Post Production Sound (and Scoring) Services were provided by Skywalker Sound: Randy Thom served as the Sound Designer and a Re-Recording Mixer. Phil Benson was the Supervising Sound Editor. Dennie Thorpe & Jana Vance performed foley, recorded by Frank "Pepe" Merel and edited by Claus Lynge.
