* SupervillainLair: Devlin's "Secret Underground Lair! Full of Rare Artifacts!" is one of these. It is actually underground, being a sub-basement of his manor-house. However, it is not elaborate enough to count as an ElaborateUndergroundBase, being only a single, museum-style, trophy room with a stage and a camera set-up to sell the rare artifacts on a secret black-market auction online. Oh, and some [[{{InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja}} ninjas]] in the ceiling.

* PostCreditsScene: The credits are filled with outtakes and deleted scenes in order to pad out the running time. As the Nostalgia Critic noted, it's like the film is effectively forcing you to watch the DVD special features, knowing you will never buy it.

Roger Ebert even stated in his review how agrivated he was when the projectionist at his screening actually ''closed the curtain'', and the film ''just kept going!''

A 2002 comedy film starring Creator/DanaCarvey as Pistachio Disguisey, a bumbling Italian American waiter working at his father's restaurant. He has a bad habit of mimicking people unintentionally. His mother and father are kidnapped one night, by mysterious bad guys. So along comes his Grandfather who reveals that the whole paternal family line are natural [[TitleDrop masters of disguise]] who utilise a mysterious transformative magic called 'Energico'. His father never told him because he didn't want his son to live a life full of dangerous enemies. But to get his father back he must train in the art of subterfuge, learn the Disguisey martial art (consisting of slaps and blocks to humiliate your opponent) and learn to use the tools of the trade, found in his father's secret lair (behind an incredibly elaborate bookshelf in the attic).
