Like all ZAZ works, parody is highly valued, and the fourth wall is almost nonexistent.[[note]]Literally! The production was [[NoBudget so cheap]] that many of the sets were built outdoors without 4th walls or even ceilings so they could be lit naturally. [[/note]]

* DragonLady: Ming Chow plays this straight, except that she's played by the palest, blondest actress imaginable presumably to parody {{yellowface}} actresses in such roles.

* SketchComedy: Given that none of the segments other than "A Fistful of Yen" top six minutes, the film is closer to this trope than to AnthologyFilm.

It is a sketch comedy film consisting of parodies of various different film genres. Segment "A Fistful of Yen" parodies Kung-fu movies of the style made famous by Creator/BruceLee, and takes up over a third of the film's 83-minute running time. None of the other segments are longer than six minutes: they include "A.M. Today", a satire of morning news; "Feel-a-Round", a satire of movie theater stunts like Smell-o-vision; and "The Wonderful World of Sex" in which a couple uses a phonograph record sex manual.

* AluminumChbristmasTrees: The song used in the opening and closing credits is an actual recording from Jo Stafford and Paul Weston as Jonathan and Darlene Edwards, who did a lot of intentionally off-key comedy records in the 50s and 60s. It wasn't written for the movie
