* RightWayWrongWayPair: Jerry and Harold have shades of this. Jerry is a huge slacker who refuses to work and is a bit of an unfeeling jerk to Angela and women in general while Harold seems to be a nice, responsible, easygoing good guy who even suggests to Jerry that Jerry should get a job. Though it's unstated, it's likely that he owns the car and earns an income to pay the rent. Harold would probably be a much better boyfriend to Angela.

* ProfessionalSlacker: Jerry, full stop!
-->'''Jerry:''' "Her mother doesn't like anything, especially me."
-->'''Harold:''' "Well, if you get a job or something, she might change her mind, you know?"
-->'''Jerry:''' "A JOB?! Be a little discreet about that, will you, Harold? Somebody's liable to hear you. "
-->'''Harold:''' "Well, you gotta do something, you know?"
-->'''Jerry:''' "Why? The world's here to be enjoyed, not to make you depressed. That's what work does, Harold, it makes you feel depressed."

* TarotTroubles: Along with performing a palm-reading and a crystal ball reading for the protagonists, Estrella also performs a tarot reading for the superstitious dancer Marge. Marge freaks out and bolts after drawing the Death card, accidentally stumbling upon Estrella's "pets" and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy setting off the events that]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch lead to her murder]].

Marge freaks out and bolts after drawing the Death card, card[[note]]As with most productions, they confuse the Death card with actual Death. In Tarot, the Death card means "change". Reversed, it means "disastrous change". The Tower and 10 of Swords would be more forboding.[[/note]], accidentally stumbling upon Estrella's "pets" and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy setting off the events that]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch lead to her murder]].

* CannotTellAJoke: The comedian in the nightclub is horrendous, especially his timing on the "my mother irons and my father steals" joke, which was really old even when this movie was made.

This freaky little film with the [[LongTitle famously unwieldy title]] was directed by the late Creator/NicolasCage-a-like Ray Dennis Steckler. [[BlitheSpirit Unemployed, free-wheeling]] Jerry (director Steckler, under the pseudonym Cash Flagg) and his "foreign" roommate Harold have fun with Jerry's well-to-do girlfriend Angela; he takes her to places she's never dreamed of -- like the amusement park out in Long Beach. Oh, and he's totally into that night club/strip joint on the carnival's main concourse, much to Angela's ire. Oops. Unfortunately for Jerry, the stripper he's interested in is the sister of the film's BigBad, evil [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} fortune-teller]] Estrella, who keeps a harem of acid-deformed "zombies" in her place of business... Attached to the night club on the carnival's concourse. Oops! Oddly enough, people keep tumbling onto Estrella's [[strike:dahrty leetle seecret]] dirty little secret, and so she hypnotizes Jerry and sends him out to silence them, then tosses him aside. Eventually the "zombies" escape their evil mistress and begin a campaign of minor mayhem through the carnival concourse before being gunned down. Jerry too, being mistaken for one of them, is chased by over-eager young cops out to the beach for a final confrontation.
