Dr. Strangelove only shows up in two scenes.


Added DiffLines:

* SlowPacedBeginning: The film is fairly pedestrian and slow-paced for the first fifteen-to-twenty minutes, with a couple of good lines, until the viewers get to The War Room and suddenly it becomes hilarious, and stays that way for the rest of the film.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: A very dark comedy with plenty of examples, but Turgidson joyful, infantile attitude on the brink of annihilation is particularly funny. Also works on a meta level on the part of Kubrick, as he chose to take RefugeInAudacity when he realized that the whole nuclear fracas was too absurd to be taken seriously and changed the tone of the movie from drama to satire.

** FunnyAneurysmMoment: When discussing the contents of the survival kit, Major Kong's original line was "shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in [Dallas] with this". President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas 2 months before the film premiered, so the line was dubbed over to say "Vegas" in post-production.
** President UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump's first pick for National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, seemed to echo General Ripper's paranoia, but about Muslims instead of communists. Flynn was also considered a loose cannon, sharing articles about the Comet Ping-Ping conspiracy theory on Twitter. Barely a month into Trump's administration, allegations over inappropriate calls to Russia forced him to resign the post.
** Trump also announced a desire to expand the nuclear capability of the U.S., citing similar logic to General Turgidson about not leaving a missile gap.

* FreudWasRight: TheMovie. Seriously, everything in the film is a sexual metaphor. '''Everything'''.
