* WebTwoPointOh: This was one of the first films to get a promotional website, as the Internet was just beginning to take off in popularity, and kickstarted the usage of interactive tie-in websites to bolster the marketing of a film. There is debate on whether or not it was ''the'' first, as ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' also claims to have the first website.

* VocalDissonance: Ra, whose teenage vocal chords somehow produce the [[EvilSoundsDeep voice]] of the ancient alien monster he truly is.

* {{Bishonen}}: Ra. (Which led to some ViewerGenderConfusion - definitely understandable, given what movie [[TheCryingGame the actor had previously appeared in]].)

In 1928, a [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum strange circular device]] is uncovered in Egypt. Cut to the present day, where it somehow ended up in possession of the United States military. With the mind of the unorthodox, [[TheWormGuy absent-minded archaeologist and linguist]] Daniel Jackson (James Spader), they manage to figure out how to use that ancient device. What they learn is that this "Stargate" opens a wormhole, leading to a desert planet.

** The snide little shout-out to Egyptologist E.A. Wallis Budge. Budge was an Victorian Egyptologist who wrote extensively on hieroglyphics, but his translations as well as his interpretations of Egyptian religion and culture were unfortunately all too influenced by his Victorian attitudes. [[http://fannyfae.com/2013/09/05/using-budge-bad-idea/ This essay explains why the line is appropriate and accurate.]] If you're interested, [[http://ask.metafilter.com/46687/Is-E-A-Wallis-Budge-still-worth-reading here's some recommended reading.]] [[GeniusBonus The remark will fly right over the heads of 99% of the audience, but will have any Egyptologists watching rolling in the aisles.]]
--> '''Daniel.''' Well, the translation of the inner track is wrong. Must've used Budge. I don't know why they keep reprinting his books.

** The Stargate program only calls Jackson because evidently no one there knows how to use brute-force methodology. They had the first six symbols already. It literally should have taken them less than a day to try out all the combinations and establish a lock.

It literally should have taken them less than a day to try out all the combinations and establish a lock. They repeat this error later in the film, in which Daniel finds that the seventh symbol has been worn off and needs to figure out through alternate means (admittedly, that method would be difficult under pressure from Ra's forces).

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Daniel just assumed the cover stone with the symbols needed to dial the Stargate back to earth would be nearby when they came through. He also didn't know what the seventh chevron (the point of origin) was going to be.(see also IdiotBall) The fact that he didn't tell anyone this ''really'' pisses off the guys he came with.

* IdiotBall: As Siskel & Ebert point out in their review, the leaders of the Stargate program take Daniel at his word that he can bring them back...''[[YouDidntAsk without asking him how.]]'' So of course, once on the other side, when they ask Daniel to take them back, he says he can't because they don't have the coordinate symbols and that he just assumed they'd be there.
