The movie:



* GoodBadBugs: While the bonus multipliers are displayed as 2X, 4X, 6X, 8X, and 10X, in reality they are 2X, 4X, 8X, 16X, and 32X respectively.



** Then again, maybe not. Notice Mark glares at David when he gets close with Kay, and shows off his new [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything spear gun]] to both of them.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Mark may be Jerkass, but if they'd listened to him, they'd have wound up a lot better: If they'd killed the monster (who they knew had killed at least 4 people previously, at least 2 without provocation) they'd have been fine. If they'd have left when he wanted to, rather than taking pictures of the cave than the monster probably wouldn't have broken out. And if he hadn't gone underwater after David, than David would have almost certainly died (although this last one was done out of purely ambitious reasons and no actual caution).

The pinball game:

** While the bonus multipliers are displayed as 2X, 4X, 6X, 8X, and 10X, in reality they are 2X, 4X, 8X, 16X, and 32X respectively.
** The Snack Attack hurry-up underflow glitch can lead to scores near the Cap of 9,999,999,990. The hurry-up will sometimes wrap around to a value very close to that cap. A player with a low enough score can intentionally let the hurry-up run long enough so that collecting it will not make his score exceed that cap, and have a nigh-unbeatable high score.

* IAmNotShazam: the monster is never actually referred to as "Creature from the Black Lagoon". He's called "the creature" a few times, but never the full title. His official name, especially in the second movie, is "Gill Man".

* UnfortunateImplications: The film is subject to the same implications as ''Film/KingKong'' and other films, with a "they're coming to take our white women" subtext.
