Visible crew/equipment: When Newton is playing with the robot arm and the piano you can clearly see wires attached to the top of it controlled by the puppeteers.
Continuity mistake: When Johnny 5 nearly drives the snack wagon over the edge to where it is hanging, it appears to have miraculously moved right back from the edge, making it look like he never went nearly over in the first place.
Trivia: The main characters in this film are Johnny and Stephanie, and the film is directed by John Badham. In one scene, Johnny watches Saturday Night Fever on TV. The scene he watches, (and imitates with Stephanie), involves two characters also called John and Stephanie. Saturday Night Fever was also directed by John Badham. (01:02:20)
Trivia: When the reporters arrive at Stephanie's house, there is a news cameraman behind them. The cameraman is the film's director, John Badham.
Number 5: Hey, laser lips! Your momma was a snow-blower.
Ben Jabituya: I am thinking she is a virgin. Or at least she used to be.
Number 5: Number 5 stupid name. Want to be Kevin or Dave. Or Johnny. Yeah. Johnny 5.
Question: Why was the robot who comes to life called "Number 5" when it seemed like there were only three others like him? Shouldn't he have been called "Number 4"?
Question: I thought the movie was supposed to take place in Oregon? In several scenes, specifically when NOVA shows up to collect number 5 the first time, multiple vehicles can be seen with Washington state license plates. Also, you can see a ferry in the background in what appears to be the Puget Sound. (00:43:50 - 00:49:20)
