** "Me so horny, me love you long time" -- much to the chagrin of any East Asian woman walking down the street. The controversial HipHop group Music/TwoLiveCrew even sampled that line in their song "[[IntercourseWithYou Me So Horny]]" on their infamous ''As Nasty As They Wanna Be'' album, as did Music/SirMixALot in "[[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks Baby Got Back]]" (albeit only in one line of the song).

* DirectorDisplacement: After ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'', this is second least Kubrickian film. Kubrick was brought in as a hired gun on the former (''Spartacus'' belongs to Creator/KirkDouglas and Kubrick does not consider it part of his filmography). But in ''Full Metal Jacket'', in which Kubrick has full control, a lot of Kubrick trademarks are missing such as long silences, long distance character shots, the use of classical music in the film score, insistence on subdued performances, and a feeling of general detachment. It may be due to the subject matter. Also, Creator/RLeeErmey undoubtedly stole the show and his "up in your face" style is very out of character for characters in Kubrick films. Also, Ermey (a real drill sergeant) was allowed to ad-lib all of his own lines, definitely unusual for control freak Kubrick.

* Genre Killer: The 80's had several Basic Training movies ranging from silly (Stripes, Private Benjamin) to semi-serious (Heartbreak Ridge, and many other forgotten movies.) Nobody bothered to make one again after this movie since it couldn't possibly be topped nor looked at in a lighthearted way again.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The 80's saw an unprecedented military buildup and lots of patriotic movies like ''Film/TopGun'' and ''Film/IronEagle'' which may have well have been recruiting videos. While there were other anti-war films (Platoon being the most famous) this movie definitely made many Gen-Xers think twice about whether a military career was right for them.

Added DiffLines:

** This is a bit of an unfair comparison though since that's a REALLY high bar. The second half is regarded as a great war film with some very memorable scenes.
