* OldShame: The majority of the cast hated the film, most notably Natalie Wood.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The entire movie. This is particularly true of all the scenes set in outer space, where every spaceship, station, and missile is an obvious plastic set using a ''stagelight as the sun'' in one shot, and the meteorites that shower upon the Earth's cities are equally unconvincing bright lights zooming across still shots of the various disaster zones. Considering what other disaster movies had been able to accomplish around the same time in the 1970s, ''Meteor'' is a particularly embarrassing case of this trope.

Meteor is a 1979 impact event film, one of the last attempts to maintain the disaster movie genre (although given the basic premise of two of the blockbusters of more modern times, maybe it was prophetic). An all-star cast including SeanConnery, Karl Malden and Creator/NatalieWood work to stop a five-mile wide meteor (yes, a five-mile wide space rock is called a meteor, not an asteroid) from hitting the Earth in six days after it was detected within the asteroid belt.

* CuttingTheKnot: Neither the United States or the Soviet Union is willing to admit they have a satellite with nuclear weapons pointing at each others country. So the President goes on television saying that both countries have a satellite put up to avert an incoming meteor and saying he'll be asking the Soviets for help. This way everyone can get on with co-ordinating their efforts instead of wasting time in diplomatic denials.
