* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Exaggerated during the climax as Ryan is able to seat a truckload of people, wash the windows, change a van's tire and check its pressure at a normal pace all while being shot at a very close range by several terrorists.

* TheCameo: John Walsh, long time host of ''AmericasMostWanted'' (along with Maury Hannigan of ''Real Stories of the Highway Patrol''), appears in the film. Though it isn't clear if he's playing as the "America's Most Wanted" host as he is seen in a backwoods bait and tackle shop.
** The puppet Lambchop from ''LambchopsPlayAlong'' for no real reason other than it's [[RuleOfFunny supposed to be funny]]

* MarketBasedTitle: The film had several French-language titles, one of which was "Is there a fugitive on board?" to blend in with other French titles for Creator/LeslieNielsen movies.
** This is an odd exception in Spain, where almost all other Nielsen films (and a few other RapidFireComedy movies) famously end with the words "...as you can". Instead, this is just titled "What a fugitive".
** In Russia, the movie is literally known as ''WrongfullyAccused Creator/LeslieNielsen'', to make sure people don't confuse it with... well, ''TheFugitive''.



* OneBookAuthor: To date, this is the only film that Pat Proft has directed.

However, ''The Fugitive'' is hardly the only movie that gets parodied here. Particularly notable targets include the ''Film/MissionImpossible (1996)'', ''Film/Titanic1997'', ''Lord of the Dance'', ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', ''Theatre/{{Riverdance}}'', ''Film/ClearAndPresentDanger'', ''Film/PatriotGames'', Mentos commercials, ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'', ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'' and even ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' and ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', among many others.
