* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: Nitroglycerin would explode very quickly if jerked around in a car like that. Joel and the bots have fun with this.

TheAlcoholic: Old Man Harris. Presumably not Steamroller Smith though; although he is drunk when first we meet him, he's apparently just returning from an all-night party (as evidenced by his tux).

* DeathBySex: Well, they don't make it to the sex stage, but it is heavily implied that the young couple in the film's ColdOpen were planning to elope before the lizard ate them.

This movie had the potential to be a campy {{narm}}-fest, alas; too little is seen of the big lizard wreaking destruction. It's seen onscreen for only about 8 minutes of the film's 74 minute running time. All the rest is seemingly taken up with characters talking about where the couple might have disappeared, hot rods, and Chase playing/teens dancing to cheesy guitar music.

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: It takes about 50 minutes before the lizard finally smashes a train, and 60 before it crashes a teen party.
