* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Jeffrey Jones, who you might remember from another movie around that time called ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
** Also one of Creator/EugeneLevy's earlier film roles.
** Jeffrey Jones was also the principal in ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' and Emperor Joseph in ''Film/{{Amadeus}}''.
** Pierce, the new executive of the Network? That's [[Series/{{Dexter}} Sgt. Doakes]]. ''Surprise Motherfucker'' indeed.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Mike Myers and Dana Carvey were almost cast as Wayne and Garth [-IN HELL!-], but since they were shooting ''Film/WaynesWorld'', a parody was made instead.
** Pam Dawber played opposite Creator/JohnRitter. We got a ''Series/ThreesCompany'' parody, but just think what they could have done with a ''Series/MorkAndMindy'' parody.
** This movie sadly came out before the RealityTV explosion . . . just think of the shows we could have gotten: [[Series/FlavorOfLove Flavor of Hate]]? [[Series/{{Survivor}} No Survivor]]? Series/{{Top C|hef}}annibal?

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The HTV segment is only the most blatant example. Combined with some severe TechnologyMarchesOn... remember when a satellite dish the size of a hot tub and a remote control the size of a bar of cooking chocolate were the bleeding edge? ... No? Darn whippersnappers.

** [[Creator/TimBurton Tim Burton]] was offered to direct this film, but he turned it down to direct [[Film/BatmanReturns Batman Returns]]. Given his style of filmmaking, imagine how much different this film could have been had Burton accepted.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: Bruce Broughton, who scored the film, called both the soundtrack album and the movie terrible. Indeed, the rap music that takes up eight of the ten cuts on the album don't really fit the movie (even though they're mostly relegated to the end credits).
