* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 6, although it would be higher on the scale if the violence wasn't so cartoonish and played for laughs. [[spoiler:Joe Earley's (Emo Philips) thumb is cut off by a table saw, with plenty of blood squirting out, Conan the Librarian (Roger Callard) cuts a guy (Jeff Maynard) in two from head to groin, some people explode in the Rambo daydream scene, and George Newman ("Weird Al" Yankovic) gets completely flattened by a boulder during his Indiana Jones fantasy]].

* TheyJustDidntCare: Parodied InUniverse with ''Film/{{Gandhi}} II'', in which the original classic is given a cheesy action sequel that directly opposes everything about the original film and Gandhi's way of life. Instead of a Hindu, ascetic, passive resistance icon, he's a steak-chomping, high-rolling, gun-toting, street vigilante with martial arts skills. (Indiaxplotation?)

** The "Money For Nothing" parody is all about ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies''. It contains scenes from the show as well as parodies of the song video.
