** MarsNeedsWomen: When Jason Nesmith and
Gwen using DistractedByTheSexy [=DeMarco=] are attempting to take shut down the reactor, they are held up by two of Sarris' men. One of them is strangely attracted to Gwen, which disgusts the other one, who claims that he'd sooner mate with an animal. ("Yes... I know.") Gwen is disgusted by the first one's attraction and pissed off at the second one's insult, so she makes the ship's computer squash them underneath a blast door.

** ThePowerOfActing: When Jason is fighting the rock monster, Alexander's advice is to attempt to figure
out some {{mooks}} its "motivation". One deleted scene shows Alex "entering the mind" of the rock monster through method acting, deducing that what it ''really'' wants is peace and quiet. [[spoiler: And, as the climax of the film reveals, he was right.]]

a PlaceboEurekaMoment by an unknown Thermian.[[http://youtu.be/9b4s5CfPD4Y?t=2m58s Deleted Scene]], she uses it to her [[InterspeciesRomance advantage]].

** According to Sigourney Weaver, the film was originally rated R, and included a ''sex scene''. All of this was taken out to make it a more marketable family-comedy. If you watch closely, you can see the over-dubbed swears.

* ActorAllusion / ActorSharedBackground: Alexander Dane's [[IAmNotSpock resentment]] of being {{Typecast}} following his famous television role reflects on his actor Rickman similarly trying to avoid typecasting as a villain following his BreakoutRole as Hans Gruber in ''Film/DieHard''.

* NamesTheSame: A very different Jason Nesmith is a singer-songwriter, and son of TheMonkees' Creator/MichaelNesmith.
* PlayingAgainstType: Sigourney Weaver stated that her role was a parody of her iconic role as [[Film/{{Alien}} Ripley]]. Gwen was the opposite of the progressive sci-fi heroine, being a "dumb blonde".
** Also Alan Rickman, who normally plays dark, emotionless characters and often villains, playing a sarcastic, dissatisfied actor in a comedy.

* EnforcedMethodActing: When the crew first arrives on the ship and Guy screams in terror, Sigourney Weaver nearly jumps out of her skin in shock. Apparently the director (purposely) didn't tell her that that was about to happen.
