Added DiffLines:

*AshFace: While riding in the tank, Pvt. Jones gets a sack of flour on his face, while Pvt. Foley takes a blast of ash on his face. Foley starts laughing at Jones because of lighter complexion, until Jones points out that Foley has darker complexion and laughs while telling Foley to "go to the back of the tank."

* BerserkButton: Stretch whenever he comes in contact with eggs. Sgt. Tree hates to see Americans fighting each other. Wild Bill Kelso hates the Japanese, as well as anyone pointing out that he's a crazy incompetant
* BrokenStreak: The one black mark on Spielberg's career from 1975 to 1982. In fact, the film actually wasn't the huge flop it's remembered as, it's just that all four of his other [[Film/{{Jaws}} films]] [[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind in]] [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk that]] [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial period]] were such huge hits that its more modest success couldn't measure up.

* TranslationConvention: Inverted -- the Japanese sub crew and their German liaison each speak their own languages but have no trouble understanding each other. This sets up a hilarious argument between [[Creator/ChristopherLee Captain Von Kleinschmidt]] and [[Creator/ToshiroMifune Captain Mitamura]] where neither will deign to speak to the other in his native language.

Captain von Kleinschmidt, in German, rails how improbable a successful attack on Hollywood would be, finishing with, "''Wakarimasu ka?''" (Do you understand?) Later, after another rant in German about the crew being unable to even find their way home, Mitamura replies--in German--"''Wir werden sehen."'' (We will see.)[[/note]]

Spielberg, with the combined backing of ''two'' major studios (Creator/{{Universal}} and [[Creator/ColumbiaPictures Columbia]]), spared no expense on this film. It has special effects rivaling those of "serious" UsefulNotes/WorldWarII epics and the AllStarCast reads like a who's who of movie comedy in the [[TheSeventies 1970s]]. All in the service of {{Slapstick}}. Unfortunately, it was a critical bomb and received disappointing box office numbers (though it wasn't the complete flop it's usually remembered as), and stands as the one black mark in Spielberg's otherwise-outstanding run of blockbusters between 1975 and 1982. It has defenders, but they are small in number and most of them ''still'' agree it isn't as good as the other movies from this period.
