* CriticalBacklash: ''Hudson Hawk'' was raked over the coals by critics when it was released. They thought it was an absolutely terrible action movie. And it was. Many viewers since have, however, noticed that it is a pretty darn good comedy, which is what its creators intended all along. It has also found an audience among anime fans due to the startling number of parallels to ''Franchise/LupinIII''.

* FridgeBrilliance: Tommy and Hudson know a series of songs's playing times by heart. They sing songs during robberies, not just to time them, but to stay in sync. Songs are sung during the auction house robbery and the Castle DaVinci assault, but ''not'' during the Vatican job, because that one is only done by Hudson -- there's no one else to sync with.
* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japan Loves Hudson Hawk]] - The film was incredibly popular in Japan due to similarities to ''Franchise/LupinIII''.
* HilariousInHindsight: Eddie's quest for a [[TrademarkFavoriteFood cappuccino]] becomes highly ironic in an age with a Starbucks on every street corner
* RetroactiveRecognition: David Caruso? [[Series/CSIMiami YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAH!]] And he's in a dress? [[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!]]

* OldShame: Bruce Willis caught a lot of flak for making this "vanity project" when it came out, so he's swept it under the rug. Richard E. Grant called the movie trash and a reporter ''an idiot'' for liking it. And this a guy who was in ''Film/SpiceWorld''!

* SpiritualAdaptation - The combination of action and slapstick, the main character being a GentlemanThief and the overall feel of the film has some people calling it a better live-action ''Film/LupinIII'' movie than the ''actual'' live-action ''Lupin III'' movie.
* {{Squick}} - The Mario brother who gets ''stabbed in the face with a rack of syringes.'' And seems to be almost unfazed by it a couple scenes later, though his partners freak out when they see his face.
