* HarsherInHindsight: While the future is current a ways off from the future depicted in this movie, there is some prominent AntiIntellectualism in Western society, an example of which is [[http://dailycaller.com/2017/07/29/update-not-being-stupid-is-cognitive-privilege-now-which-is-just-like-white-privilege/ this article comparing being intelligent to white privilege]].

** In addition, he did point out that 2505 is unusually open minded to the point where racism and sexism seem to be forgotten, ignoring the prominence of sex sells in their culture. Even then, the news shows that men and women are both used for fanservice.

* MisaimedFandom:
** Quite a lot of people take this movie seriously, pointing to the (purported) stupidity of modern pop culture as proof that this movie is a good predictor of the future. The filmmakers themselves eventually rolled with this, although it was more for socio-political reasons and insidious business practices than lethal stupidity causes by mass consumer culture.
** A harmless example: ''Ow, My Balls'' is depicted InUniverse as the ultimate example of [[LowestCommonDenominator lowbrow, nonintellectual culture]] and everyone who finds it even remotely funny is a complete moron. But admit it: you laughed at least a ''little'' at it.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: One of the menu choices at the hospital is a picture of a butt being stabbed with a knife. Apparently, this is a common problem in 2505.

** Carl's Jr. commercials seemed to change drastically after being featured so heavily in this film. This is even lampshaded by the commercials ''themselves'' as an older man (presumbly the 'Carl' in Carl's Jr.) taking his son to task for commercials that seemed to only exist for FanService. He even mocks the tagline for these ads ("You hongry?") and "fires" Junior from marketing. Now, there may not be a direct correlation between this film and the marketing change, but it is hard to believe that ''no one'' at Carl's Jr. saw this movie and were happy about the way their company was portrayed.

** Only to an extent -- we don't know Joe's background, but Rita's clearly not particularly well-off, but adapts much faster than Joe and regularly shows herself to be his mental superior. It's more that the film's backstory dwells more on cultural elite not breeding [[AcceptableTargets when rednecks do.]]
