* WhatAnIdiot: Gordon is ''definitely'' the worst offender, agreeing to appear on TV given his situation. But he's far from alone - see IdiotPlot.

** The climactic "climactic" fight scene.scene, complete with random sound effects and whiplash editing that turn ThoseTwoBadGuys into {{Anticlimax Boss}}es.

** "Lookie, lookie, lookie, in Kat's black bookie." Our BadassBiker, everybody.

* SnarkBait: The dated qualities of the film and the briefly high profile of its star led to it becoming a popular target for this trope. In particular, ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' and the podcast ''How Did This Get Made?'' profiled the film. RiffTrax later released a VOD with riffing commentary.

* NostalgiaFilter: Much like how ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' can only be appreciated by people who were kids caught up in the Pokemon craze at the time, those who were big Music/VanillaIce fans during his peak years absolutely ''adore'' this movie, and more than a few are willing to [[NarmCharm turn a blind eye to it's flaws]].

* IdiotPlot: 90% of the film's problems would be solved if Vanilla Ice and the people he talks to ''talked plainly to each other.'' Most of the misunderstandings happen because ''nobody tells anyone anything.'' For example, if Kathy just told Ice that her father doesn't want him around because he thinks he's trying to ''kill her''. Or if Ice just told her father that he'd rescued her. Or if Kathy's father ''called the police before his son was kidnapped when he already knew his entire family was in danger.''

to:

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Kathy's little brother Tommy is actually kinda funny, and definitely the funniest character in the movie. Especially when he catches Johnny and Kathy about to do something very illicit.

** One of the crooks (the balding one) is so immature and dorky, you have to wonder how he got on ''America's Most Wanted'' to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* StrangledByTheRedString: Literally Kathy & Johnny's entire romance. She goes from righteously pissed off at him - after he causes her to fall off a horse, mind you - to chuckling at his patented witticisms in the next scene, and she remains transfixed by him through thick and thin.

* NostalgiaFilter: Those who did not grow up during VanillaIce's peak period will either laugh themselves to death or loath this film for his hilarious out-of-date lingo, incompetent direction and cheesy story. Now go to {{Netflix}}, {{IMDb}} or {{Amazon}} and look at all the reviews from people who were huge fans of his at that time and you will see nothing but love.
