** Kit mentions wanting to do an OscarBait movie with him playing a mentally handicapped person since he comments on white actors constantly winning Oscars for that. Nine years later, Creator/RobertDowneyJr, who plays Renfro in this, would star in [[Film/TropicThunder another film]] that featured a white action star doing a blatant OscarBait film where he played a mentally handicapped person, which ended up back-firing horribly and being an in-universe StarDerailingRole for him.

* DudeNotFunny: Even if Bowfinger isn't doing it knowingly, in the end this is a film about a wanna-be director making a film by stalking a paranoid-delusional and having a script and actors that play to his mental illnesses to provoke the react they need from his character. Kit spends most of the film on the verge of a total nervous breakdown and is reduced to a sobbing wreck at one point.

* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Toyed with but ultimately subverted. Bowfinger gets his film crew by hustling illegal Mexican immigrants into the back of his van. By the end of the movie, the men have learned all about film-making and are now respected and highly successful professionals.
