* The Norwegian war movie ''Film/NineLives'', directed by Arne Skouen, has a married couple helping the hero in a critical phase - played by actors Alf Malland and Henny Moan. At some point in the movie, the two have to fight their way through a blizzard, with the wife (Moan) almost collapsing in the snow. Five years after ''Nine Lives'' producer Arne Skouen made ''Film/ColdTracks'', once again with Malland and Moan in central roles, and once again, Moan collapses during a blizzard (in ''Cold Tracks'', she does it ''twice''). This movie also retold events from WorldWarII.

* In ''Film/TheDevilsCarnivalAlleluia'', The Agent asks The Publicist, played by Ted Neeley, "what's the buzz? Tell me what's happening," a question repeatedly asked of Neeley's character, Jesus, in a number from ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''. An angel introduces a performance by God with the odd phrase "mark it up!" the title and refrain of a song from ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'', a film that shares many of the same cast and crew, including the actor playing God.

** Rob Schneider plays one of the good behavior inmates who watch the game from the stands. At one point he encourages the players by saying "You can do it!" exactly like his character in ''TheWaterboy''.
