** Perhaps even more mind-boggling is the film not getting nominations for Best Director or Cinematography, or a Best Picture slot.



** For that matter, the dude who got badly beaten up and killed by Rollergirl.

** On the [[FairForItsDay other hand]], the porn crew's lax attitude towards sexuality comes off as more relatable today than the more [[MoralGuardians conservative]] standards of the time period.

* AwardSnub: The film went relatively unnoticed outside of commendations for Creator/BurtReynolds (ironic, given how much Burt disliked working on the film), Creator/Julianne Moore, and the Screenplay. Many now cite Moore's loss for Best Supporting Actress as an unfortunate Academy decision.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Even amongst the copious nudity in the movie, Creator/HeatherGraham's nude scene and Creator/MarkWalhberg's fake wang stand out. Both induced a lot of sucking noises in theatres.

** The above-mentioned song performed by Mark Wahlberg, now that he's [[Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction the human lead in a Transformers film]].
* JerkassWoobie: All the main characters spend a little time being this, but Little Bill is probably the prime example. It helps that he's played by William H. Macy.

* ParentalIncest: Implied. Eddie's mom seems a little too jealous of his relationship with Sheryl Lynn.
* PlotHole: How is Dirk able to push a bright red (ok, Competition Orange) Corvette with a smashed in front end and shot out windows away from the scene of a shootout and halfway across Los Angeles without anyone stopping him or even noticing?
** To be fair, the car did start, which got him away from the scene. He only pushed it after it ran out of gas, and it's assumed it got him far enough away to avoid suspicion before it did. It was also the wee hours, and it's doubtful anyone called the cops (drugs, guns, and dead bodies? Who would you be calling?)
* StrawHypocrite: The homophobe who picks Dirk up and beats him up along with his friends for supposedly being a "fag" and disagreeing with what he was doing. Never mind that he seemed to get pretty into it when he was watching him masturbating, telling him to go faster and harder.

* HilariousInHindsight: Thomas Jane running around with a gun, blasting everything in sight. [[ThePunisher Sound familiar?]]
** And then getting blown away by Doc Ock.
