Added DiffLines:

** The Haunted House club and discotheque did actually exist on Hollywood Blvd. in the mid-60's -- given the movie's cheap production values, they could hardly afford to outfit an entire set with Halloween dressing. (Ironically, reflecting the rather seedy nature of the film, it was later converted into a porno theater in the 70's, and exists today as a strip club.)

Girl in Gold Boots is a 1969 crime/drama film about the seedy underworld of Go-Go dancing, directed by Ted V. Mikels, who also directed ''The Astro-Zombies''. It could easily be described as "the PG version of ''Film/{{Showgirls}}''[[note]]Itself a variation of ''AllAboutEve''[[/note]]," [[SnarkBait with absolutely everything that implies]].

%% * AmbiguouslyBrown: Michele.



* InflationNegation: Michele's never seen a $100 bill before, and Critter ''brags'' he made $50 with one of his songs. Hershey bars cost a dime.
* InformedAbility: Note to would-be film-makers: When making a movie about a talented dancer, don't cast someone who lurches about like a tipsy aunt at a wedding in your lead role.
-->'''Mike:''' Aaaaaaaaaand ''convulse''!
-->'''Servo:''' Let's do the agitator cycle!
** Critter's songwriting and musical ability are also ridiculously inflated, leading Mike to query at the end: "Here's a puzzler: which of these two are ''worse'' at their art form?" Crow and Tom are stumped.
** Hell, this is InformedAbility TheMovie. Buz is said to be [[DawsonCasting a child]], Leo is said to be a powerful drug dealer, yet all he does is talk evil, and he goes down pretty fast in the final fight scene. Harry has this lockpick we never see, so as far as we know, the drawer and the cell door were open.

* TemptingFate: Harry Blatts - see Too Dumb To Live.
* TooDumbToLive: Nobody in this movie could pass an IQ test (okay, ''maybe'' Critter would write the answers on his wrist), but the sheer petulant incomprehension Michele demonstrates in every single situation she faces is a true wonder to behold.

*** And while this was an idiotic move on Harry's part, Buz was an even bigger moron for actually killing him, or at least doing it right that second.
--->'''Mike (as Buz):''' Yes, my plan is perfect. I've been spotted by several people ''and'' I killed a guy!
--->'''Tom:''' Well what do you expect? He's [[DawsonCasting only a child]]!
*** [[invoked]] Special mention must be given to Critter's decision to [[WhatAnIdiot confront known drug dealer]] and all around thug Leo, tell them he knows about their criminal activity and he's leaving.
