* ActorAllusion: At one point, Roy Knable stumbles through a channel onto the set of the [[Series/ThreesCompany television show]] that catapulted John Ritter to fame in the 1970s. Two women dressed as Chrissy Snow and Janet Wood shout "Where have you been?", a snippet of the ThemeSong plays, and Roy screams in terror, trips over the couch, and changes the channel.

* 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.
