* FriendOrIdolDecision: Jack has to choose between rescuing Joan from Zolo, or getting the stone back from the crocodile that swallowed it. [[ThePowerOfLove He chooses love, of course]]...[[SubvertedTrope only to have his gun be out of bullets]], so that he has to [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments climb the wall]]. [[DoubleSubversion And by the time he gets there,]] [[ActionGirl she's already rescued herself.]] He's surprisingly not too upset about this.

* TookALevelInBadass: ''Joan''. She starts out the movie as a mousey, cringing DamselInDistress, but by the end of it she's throwing switchblades, burning Zolo with his own cigar, bashing him with a broken board right in his handless stump, knocking him [[KillItWithFire onto a lantern]], and dodging so that [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill he falls into a pit of crocodiles]]. How far she's come is first hinted at during the start of hostilities at the fort: when the guns start going off, Elaine (whom Joan had initially thought was the stronger sister) screams and cowers on her knees, but Joan doesn't even bat an eye, simply helping her up and dragging her off to safety elsewhere. Later, when Joan's knife gambit doesn't work, Elaine faints.

The trio actually had the option to do a third ''Romancing'' film, but they opted to do ''Film/TheWarOfTheRoses'' instead.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A second sequel with the working title, ''The Crimson Eagle'', was optioned but ultimately shelved. The plot would have involved Jack, Joan and their kids in Thailand being blackmailed into stealing a priceless statue.

* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Both played straight and subverted. Played straight in the FakeOutOpening when Angelina throws the knife strapped to her thigh to kill Grogan. Subverted [[spoiler: when Joan tries to pull the same trick on Zolo. He blocks it with the branch he's using to attack her with, and then tries to kill her with that instead.]]
