* EnsembleDarkhorse: Whitney Moore (Nathalie) is usually cited as the best part of the film, both because she's clearly finding it as ridiculous as the audience and because she's gorgeous. [[Podcast/{{Rifftrax}} Kevin Murphy forgives the entire first half of the movie after she strips down to her underwear.]]
** Nathalie's Mom, played by Patsy van Ettinger, is frequently praised for being so sincere in her role and [[DotingParent for being a loving, supportive mother.]] Even WebVideo/{{JonTron}} considers her to be the film's saving grace.

** The fact Rick's actor can do a [[VideoGame/PokerNight2 dead-on Ash Williams impression]] makes one wonder what [[Film/TheEvilDead Bruce Campbell]] would have been like in the lead.

** The film was basically edited in camera. Which means, he shot a scene, then changed angle, and shot again from the new angle. He didn't shoot the entire scene from various angles then edit them. One result is there's no room tone taken, so the background noise keeps changing. In the case of the boardroom applauding scene, instead of having them clapping contiguously, it seems like they start and stop clapping with each cut.

** The boardroom scene is clearly the same scene repeated three or four times from different angles, making the padding even more apparent.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Allowing for NoBudget and improvised props, Nguyen still didn't exactly show that he was thorough with his direction.
** Many obviously botched lines were left in such as "part-times Eagles fan" and "you're a cats lover".
** Nguyen also completely ignored sound mixing or even taking a normal room tone, which is why the background would change during editing. For example, during the scene with Tom Hill, you could hear a brook babbling behind him when the shot was on him, but the sound of water would vanish when the camera was off him.
** The credits of this movie claim there was an editor, but there's not much evidence of one. The majority of scenes end on long, awkward silences where everyone stands around waiting for the director to call cut, flubbed lines are cut off in mid-sentence and spliced right into the retake, and wedged between two early scenes are a few frames of a car sitting in a parking lot, which either nobody noticed or bothered to trim out completely.
** Speaking of cars, there are quite a few people driving back ''towards'' the killer birds after the escape from the motel. It's almost like nobody told these drivers that they were in a movie...
** In fact, it seems the "editing" consisted of stopping filming and starting filming from another angle. In other words, there was no cutting or splicing (or video editing since the entire film was done on digital video.)
** You can see some of the forest fire bits vanish before the scene ends, or freeze completely.
** Whitney Moore, Nathalie's actress, obviously couldn't make herself take the movie seriously either. She's trying to hold back laughter in almost every scene she's in and giggles the whole time at the sheer stupidity. The audience is likely doing the same.

** There are many serious ecological concerns associated with global climate change, from abnormally short or long seasons to widespread flooding to powerful hurricanes to [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking more]] [[KnowYourVines poison ivy]]. However, "exploding mutant birds" is ''not'' one of them.

** James Nguyen obviously had no idea how big a deal being a Victoria's Secret cover model is - in terms of money or prestige. He makes it seem like just another model job.[[labelnote:Note]]To put it in perspective, a Victoria's Secret model being paid at the LOW end of the scale is still making ''several million dollars'' per year.[[/labelnote]]
