* CharacterOverlap: Averted. ONLY Jay Sherman crosses over from his show to visit the Simpsons. All other characters in the show, such as Doris, Jeremy Hawke, Duke Philips, Alice, or any members of Jay's family, do not appear, nor are they even mentioned. This was likely done not to overcomplicate the plot and keep the crossover as unobtrusive as possible, as well as to prevent the need to come up with new, Simpsonized character designs for them. Also, unlike the future FamilyGuy and {{Futurama}} crossovers, the Critic was not a long-beloved show whose Simpsons crossover was ever really desired.

** Seeing as this episode was mostly done as an advertisement for the Critic, it is likely this was done to sell the character to an audience who knew little about him. Trying to sell a character who is pathetic and ugly would have most likely been a hard sell.



* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: ''[=McBain=] -- Let's Get Silly'', a stand-up comedy film with [=McBain=] bombing onstage and bombing the audience after they heckle him.

* {{Homage}}: ''Moe Better Booze'' is this to ''{{Cabaret}}'''s "The Money Song", while ''A Burns for All Seasons'' shamelessly recasts Mr. Burns as such characters as E.T. and Jesus Christ (!) as portrayed in ''Film/BenHur''.

* AdaptationDeviation: A somewhat unusual crossover-related example for Jay Sherman. In [[TheCritic his show]], while he is highly accomplished (he has a PhD in film and two Pulitzer Prizes), he is often very disrepected and ignored. He is seen as extremely gross, pathetic, and unliked, and with a few exceptions, most women find him hideous, and his relationship with his ex-wife is...frosty, to say the least. In this crossover, however, he is considered even more talented and successful (with five Golden Globes, a People's Choice Award, and an Emmy), but is highly lauded and embraced. Also, Marge, Patty, and Selma are extremely drawn to him and want to hear all of what he has to say. Homer feels so threatened by Jay's charm and intelligence he defeatedly allows Marge to sleep with him because he could never compete. This is something that would have NEVER happened in the Critic.
