* BadBadActing: All the characters in their movie-within-a-movie porn performances, Amber Waves' affectless "that is a giant cock" being a good example. The cast and writers studied actual adult films from the 1970s to ensure the dialogue was appropriately cheesy and the acting suitably flat.

* AffablyEvil: The Colonel. At first he's a friendly, charming older Gentleman who happens to like his girls (very) young. It's not till later that we really see what a horrible human being he really is.

Adult film producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) spots busboy Eddie Adams in one of his regular nightclubs, and in talking to him learns of both his [[BiggerIsBetterInBed extremely generous endowment]] and his quick recovery time (he has already brought himself off twice that evening for $10 a look). After a fight with his mother, Eddie runs away to accept Horner's offer of film work, and soon finds success on the screen as Dirk Diggler, the star of the ''Brock Landers'' action/porn series.
