Added DiffLines:

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: This was the first shot at a mainstream movie by the people who made ''Film/TheKentuckyFriedMovie''. With its obsession with puns and its throwing of conventional plotline out the window, many believed it had box-office disaster written all over it. It became one of the highest-grossing films of 1980.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: At the time, the entire joke with Leslie Nielson's character was seeing a serious actor bringing every bit of his usual gravitas to such ridiculous material. [[LeslieNielsenSyndrome Nielsen proceeded to make this kind of material his bread and butter]], so that viewers these days will likely just be surprised that he's not playing the lead role.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The Zuckers and Abrahams were actually disappointed when the film ended up with a genuinely good score, rather than a cheesy one that would add to the parody. They probably shouldn't have hired Music/ElmerBernstein.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Johnny the control tower employee inspires this reaction from some viewers, especially during his ForTheEvulz moment with the runway lights. Others consider his antics to be one of the [[CrossesTheLineTwice funniest things]] in the movie.
