Trivia

Pauly Shore was considered for the role of Link before the producers met Brendan Fraser and decided that he was better suited for the part. However, they liked Shore so much that they created the role of Stoney just for him. Most of Stoney's lines were ad-libbed by Shore because they were never in the original script.
