Murphy won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in the film. 'Party All The Time' was produced by Rick James and 'Put Your Mouth On Me' was a parody of the Donna Summer & Barbra Streisand disco duet 'No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)'.

Both songs were taken from his 1982 eponymous comedy album.
