* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This movie really captures the whole music scene of the 90s. This is especially notable when a reporter describes our main characters as having "MTV-soaked minds", referring to the time before {{MTV}}'s NetworkDecay when it was still primarily focused on music.
** In addition, we have see classic 90s toys like Stretch Armstrong, and someone prominently playing a Game Gear (with SFX from a real GG game, thus averting PacManFever).
** And of course, the simple fact that the Lone Rangers have no choice - in their own minds at least - but to take over a radio station and forcing the staff to play their demo tape seems even more absurd today in an era where they could easily just upload their music on line by way of various social media sites in order to promote themselves. And don't get started on how much cell phones or satellite radio would impact the plot.
** To say nothing of only a reel-to-reel and cassette copy of the demo existing...the entire plot would fall apart with a digital version.

** The entire plot revolving around three angry men taking over a radio station with fake guns doesn't look quite as funny due to the amount of gun violence in recent years (see ValuesDissonance below).

* ValuesDissonance: It's a goofy comedy about guys taking a radio station hostage with fake Uzis, and we're supposed to root for them. After all the violence of the last few decades, if this movie were made today, it would probably be a whole lot darker.
