* CrossesTheLineTwice: Several gags, but particularly the "[[GetAholdOfYourselfMan hysterical woman gets slapped]]" one, not to mention stewardess Randy's disastrous attempt to cheer up the LittlestCancerPatient; both are played as BlackComedy.

** While in the Peace Corps, Ted briefly shows some African tribesmen how to play basketball; within seconds, they're dunking on him and perfectly nailing free throws.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: At the time, the entire joke with Creator/LeslieNielson'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.

** The film opens with a ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' parody, with the wing of a plane doubling as a shark fin. Years later, Robert Hayes would cameo in a [[Film/Sharknado2TheSecondOne film]] where sharks actually attack a plane.



* RetroactiveRecognition: David Leisure (''Series/EmptyNest'', Joe Isuzu) is one of the Hare Krishna. Robert Hayes voiced ComicBook/IronMan in the 90s Marvel cartoons[[note]]''WesternAnimation/IronMan'', obviously, in addition to guest spots on ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk''[[/note]], as well.

** Hiring [[ComicallySerious non-comedic actors]] in a screwball comedy. Nowadays, it's impossible to find any famous actor who has't regularly done both genres.

* FountainOfMemes: Let's be real, if you're a first-time viewer today, you might have already heard a good chunk of the jokes just from the people referencing the movie.

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.

* 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.

* WeirdAlEffect: ''Zero Hour'', the movie it was based on. In fact it's technically a remake, not just a parody.
