** In this movie, Samuel L. Jackson plays an over-the-top, WellIntentionedExtremist Bond-esque villain with plans to reshape the world to his designs, and is opposed by the Kingsmen, a group of top-secret special force dedicated to protecting the world from the shadows. Compare this with his role of Nick Fury in Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, where he's a level-headed, no-nonsense GenreSavvy leader of SHIELD, a secret peace-keeping organization no different than the Kingsmen, and is archenemies with HYDRA, another group of Well-Intentioned Extremist villains ''also'' with plans to reshape the world to their designs.

* In ''Film/{{Ted 2}}'', Bobby Moynihan is seen portraying Ted in an in-universe ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch. This wouldn't be the last time he would [[WesternAnimation/WeBareBears play a bear]].

* In ''Film/BabysDayOut'' one character says ( with Joe Pantoliano in the scene) 'Hey, Eddie, maybe [[Film/TheMatrix he went down a rabbit hole.']]

to:

* A simple AliceAllusion In ''Film/BabysDayOut'' becomes hilarious when one character says ( with Joe Pantoliano in the scene) 'Hey, "Hey, Eddie, maybe [[Film/TheMatrix he [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland went down a rabbit hole.']]hole]]" when you that the scene also has Joe Pantoliano, who would star in [[Film/TheMatrix another movie]] that [[MemeticMutation famously]] used the same reference.

* ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact'' was made in 1984 and one of the characters is wearing an off the shoulder {{Flashdance}} style sweater. Shirts like this actually came back into fashion in the second half of TheOughts, being ubiquitous in 2010.

** The exploding shark. ''Film/JawsTheRevenge''.

* The scene from ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' where Marty shows two future kids how to play ''Wild Gunman'', and they deride it because "you have to use your hands". This is funnier given [[StopHavingFunGuys some fanboys']] reaction to motion-control systems like the Wii, the Kinect, and the PlayStation Move.

** Also, precisely one week after the release of ''Kingsman'', ''VideoGame/TheOrder1886'' came out for PS4, which happens to feature an order of Knights who take their monikers from Arthurian legend and induct new Knights into their Order only when another dies in the line of duty. You even ''play'' as one Sir Galahad!
