* GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld: Al Lowe had little-to-no involvement in ''Magna Cum Laude'' or ''Box Office Bust''. Heck, due to poor foresight, Al doesn't own the rights to Larry, which Sierra sold to Creator/{{Codemasters}}. Lowe would famously compare ''Magna Cum Laude'' to getting a ransom video from your son's kidnappers: "On one hand, you're glad he's still alive, but on the other, my God, look what they've done to him!"

** Al Lowe thought of naming the protagonist "Gary" instead of "Larry". Gary was an unpopular traveling sales representative working at Sierra.
** Sierra and Hollywood were in talks to make a Larry movie, but it never took off.

* FranchiseKiller: ''Box Office Bust'' more or less ensured that non-remake games of ''Leisure Suit Larry'' wouldn't see the light of day, so much that Creator/AlLowe ended up thanking Activision (who had absorbed Sierra by that point) for keeping him and themselves away from the atrocity. Codemasters actually owns the writers to Leisure Suit Larry not Activision.

* NamesTheSame: There are technically two games in the series named ''Leisure Suit Larry's Casino''. The first one was a compilation of the casino games from the LSL 1 VGA remake and LSL 5 under the ''Crazy Nick's Software Picks'' budget line.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: The [[PrecisionFStrike excessive profanity]] in ''Box Office Bust'' as a substitute for more sexualized content was reportedly done at the request of the game's executive producer, who felt that the storyline and comedy would be enough to sell more copies. [[GoneHorriblyWrong Oops....]]

Added DiffLines:

* TroubledProduction: ''Box Office Bust'' had to deal with being developed in just under a year, drastically changing the game's point-and-click formula to an open-sandbox platformer, heavily-trimmed down nudity and sexual content in favor of non-stop profanity, Creator/{{Sierra}} dropping the game after the Creator/{{Activision}}-[[Creator/BlizzardEntertainment Blizzard]] merger, the ''Leisure Suit Larry'' property getting sold to Creator/{{Codemasters}}, and Codemasters having to rapidly rush the game out to meet its release date.
