* CreatorBacklash: Music/PaulMcCartney seems to have disowned "Spies Like Us", his Top Ten recording from the film. The song has not appeared on any of the numerous best-ofs Paul has released. To date, the song's only appearance on a [=McCartney=] album of any sort is the CD reissue of ''Press to Play'', one of his rarest and least sought-after albums.



* ProductionPosse: Many ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' alumni (both Aykroyd and Chase are members) tend to team up for various movies. {{SCTV}} alum Joe Flaherty has a bit role as well.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This movie could only have been made in [[TheEighties the 80s]], when the Strategic Defense Initiative was a pressing matter.

Added DiffLines:

* ActivationSequence: There's one of these broken up into two parts. First a scene about 45 seconds long where a drive-in movie theater undergoes a transformation into a facility capable of firing an anti-ICBM beam weapon. A minute or so later there's a 1 minute 20 second long sequence where some satellites are moved into "bounce mode" so they can guide the beam properly.

* YouJustToldMe: Agent Millbarge suspects that a pair of agents supposedly sent to help him and his partner are actually KGB agents. He confirms his suspicions by saying something funny in Russian, making one of them laugh.

This movie is [[ShoutOut referenced heavily]] in the song "Out With a Bang" by Self; even the title is a quote from the film. A ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode titled "Spies Reminiscent of Us" was a sequel to this film. There are also multiple references in the Creator/{{NBC}} show ''Series/{{Chuck}}''.
