* 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.

* 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 it's pressure at a normal pace all while being shot at a very close range by several terrorists.

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.

** After the "Boom Operator" (a real film job, operating the boom microphone) are listed a "Pow Operator" and "Kablam Operator".
** Also appearing later on is a restaurant menu of entrees.
** The Negative Cutter (who edits the film negative to match the final print) is followed by "Very Up and Positive" Cutter.

The frame {{parody}} is built around the 1993 version of ''Film/TheFugitive'' and renowned concert violinist, Ryan Harrison's (Leslie Nielsen) pursuit of the one-armed, one-legged and one-eyed man who killed his lover's husband after being framed for the murder. Richard Crenna's delightful parody of Creator/TommyLeeJones' fast-talking federal marshal is probably the highlight of the movie, with many of the best lines.

** On top of that Ryan's last name is a nod to Creator/HarrisonFord.
