** Whether intentional or not the film has a few Disney related references, some blatant, others subtle. There's the entire [[Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio Pinocchio]] plot but then we have Monica (David's mother) playing "Once Upon a Dream" from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' to her '''cryogenically frozen son'''... She's then also humming the tune later before going to a party with her husband and as they're leaving her shoe slips in a ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' moment. There is a possible referance to {{Tron}}, the bikers sent to collect robots for the flesh lights are on Tron-esque bikes and have TronLines.

* InnocentInaccurate: A programmed version. Gigolo Joe thinks the horrible bruises on Patricia, a first-time client, are the result of sexual "passion," although she has clearly been abused. Finding his next client dead (Samantha, a regular of his), on the other hand, wakes him up pretty quickly.

* InTheStyleOf: In honor of his late friend, Spielberg emulated Kubrick's style. If the behind-the-scenes is to be believed, Kubrick taking on the role of director would've resulted in a reverse of this.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: This probably would have been Kubrick's 'kids' movie if he lived to direct it. It is easily his most sentimental project.

** Note that this is [[ETTheExtraTerrestrial not the first]] Spielberg film to have such a title.

* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler:As David lays in bed with Monica, the narration says "That was the everlasting moment he had been waiting for. And
the moment had passed, for Monica was sound asleep -- more than merely asleep. Should he shake her she would never rouse. So David went to sleep too. And for the first time in his life, he went to that place where dreams are born." What exactly this means is not fully clear.]]

* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler:However it is implied, by her complete devotion to David and that she doesn't seem to recall Henry and Martin, that this isn't an authentic or exact copy of Monica but one imperfect clone tailor-made to fulfil David's desires, a role very similar to the one David filled towards the original Monica.]]

* BadMoonRising: The "full moon" is really a hot air balloon from the flesh fair to capture mechas. Later, Joe and David decide to go the opposite direction when they see the real full moon in the sky.



* FantasticRacism: Of the most chillingly inhumane kind.

* FantasticRacism: Of the most chillingly inhumane kind. Gigolo Joe believes the racism stems from realization following the melted ice caps that they'll eventually die out while the robots will replace them.

**Subverted by the plot of the AlternateRealityGame accompanying the film, [[spoiler:which reveals that 40 years after the movie's events, an A.I. used nanomachines saturated into the world's oceans to freeze the planet after TheSingularity. The entire ocean froze down to bedrock rather than just sheets of ice on the surface, meaning there would be no glacial movement]].


Added DiffLines:

**The AlternateRealityGame reveals [[spoiler:about 40 years after David is trapped underwater, humans saturate the world's oceans with nano-machines to combat global warming. The nano-machines function as mirrors to reflect sunlight when activated, but eventually form a single neural network and [[TheSingularity gain sentience]]. The newly-born A.I. decides to destroy humanity as an act of self preservation and turns on all the nano-mirrors at once, causing a global ice age]].
