Moved to the YMMV page.
* PoorMansSubstitute: Inverted. Tod was originally going to be named "Jon Lovitz" because the character was so heavily based on the actor, but the director and producer thought there was no way they could hire him. Lovitz ended up taking the part and loved the Tod-based set pieces so much he said he wanted to take them home and set them up around his pool.

* Fanservice: The entirety of the rebellious people, but especially Kathy Ireland. Not in the least because of her...

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Dick and Marge, showing slides after their trip, treat taking a pic of ''UsefulNotes/{{Saturn}}'' from their station wagon like they'd passed by the Grand Canyon. Dick thanks Marge for insisting he use the flash.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Hold it Spengo! That's MY wife you've got there, that's MY planet you're trying to blow up and ''(looking at the man tied to the Death Ray)'' that's... just some guy I met.

* TheUnfrozenCavemanLawyer: Just like JohnCarterOfMars was able to use his comparatively HeavyWorlder physique to become a Martian Warlord, Dick Nelson is able to take the entire planet of Spengo by storm despite being your average suburbanite because he's the only person on the planet besides his wife who is ''not'' an idiot.

It wasn't even nominated.
It won every HugoAward that it was nominated for ''except'' Best Dramatic Presentation; it lost to ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''.

'''''Mom and Dad Save the World''''' is a 1992 film parody of ''Film/FlashGordon'' which stars Jon Lovitz, Teri Garr, Jeffrey Jones, Eric Idle, Thalmus Rasulala and other actors. Jon Lovitz plays Emperor Tod Spengo who is the cruel, silly and over-dramatic emperor of the planet named Spengo (which had been named Spango until Spengo conquered it and renamed it after himself). Teri Garr plays Marge Nelson and Jeffrey Jones plays Dick Nelson, her husband.

--->'''Spengo soldier:''' The Earth-man has a light grenade for a head! *** Strangely enough, it ''isn't'' the "Pick Me Up" message which gets them to pick it up. Only the man who picks it up before the platoon leader makes the call reads it. The rest (it's implied) seem to fall from a chain of dialogue which causes the next man to pick it up. They're just ''that'' stupid.
