* ProductPlacement: Notably for Dr. Pepper and M&Ms. Pennzoil seems to have sponsored the mars buggy they travel in.

Added DiffLines:

* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler:The face was waiting for someone to put the missing pair of chromosomes in the Martian DNA. If it gets a wrong answer (such as the radar the ''Mars I'' crew scanned with), it triggers the vortex to defend itself.]]
* ShoutOut: The ''Mars II'' spacecraft resembles the ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Discovery]]'', especially on the inside, and even has a talking computer.
* SingleTear: [[spoiler: From the female Martian.]]

* ArtificialGravity: The Mars missions each use a ship with a rotating habitat area for centrifugal gravity generation. The gang had a lot of fun dancing Zero-G style in the central hub! Apparently, the cockpit module also served as a lander and return vehicle, leaving the question of whether or not the cockpit would re-couple with the drive section possibly left in orbit or if the astronauts would spend the return voyage completely in zero gravity.

* OnlyAFleshWound: The micro-meteor storm is heralded in when Phil gets one strait through his hand. This barely slows Phil the rest of the movie, whose hand seems to be in good enough condition to lug the sled across Mars and be trusted to launch and fly back to Earth by himself.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfDrama: Jim's excuse for not immediately getting a helmet when the ship is depressurizing is so there is danger involved. If he did put a helmet on the team could have taken their time on sealing the breach.
