Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Admiral Benson's eulogy eventually involves characters from ''Film/TheGodfather'', which is made funnier [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia! given what Lloyd Bridges later appeared in]].

** In ''Part Deux'', Ryan Stiles plays a member of Topper's team ("I'm looking forward to blowing something up.") and would later play Dr. Herb Melnick, who marries Alan's (Cryer) ex-wife Judith.

!!Part Deux
* EvenBetterSequel: The original film is a clever spoof of ''Film/TopGun'' but the "AcePilot Flyboy" movies just don't have the same wealth of material to joke around with as the ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}''-esque action movies. In ''Part Deux'' the jokes come faster and is a more spot-on parody.
* GeniusBonus: At point Benson calls the Japanese Prime Minister "Tojo". He's not an essential character so it's pretty easy to have already forgotten that his name is Sato. But it's not just a random CloudCuckooLander moment - Tojo was the prime minister of Japan during WorldWarTwo.
* HilariousInHindsight: After Creator/CharlieSheen's breakdown and claims of "[[MemeticMutation Winning!]]" the FightClubbing scene where he defeats his opponent and says in a high-pitched voice "You win!" is funnier than it should be.
** And, of course, a second invasion of Iraq with [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush an idiot president]] at the helm. Mighty also count as HarsherInHindsight.
** Said invasion involves a one-on-one duel between the president and Saddam himself. In the build up to the real war, Saddam actually challenged the president to one (although it never happened).
* StalkingIsLove: Ramada's first husband.
* UncannyValley: The chicken about to be fired from a bow.
