* GeniusBonus: So many.In Ned Alleyn's introductory scene, he enthusiastically rattles off a list of leading roles that he's played in Marlowe's plays, then dismissively adds that he also played [[Theatre/HenryVI King Henry VI]] when he notices Shakespeare in earshot. If you're familiar with the ''Henry VI'' trilogy, you can understand why Ned might not think highly of the role: Henry VI is a glorified side character in the play named for him, as the play is actually about the fracturing of the English nobility in the UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses; Henry had almost no notable accomplishments to his name, and he's largely remembered as [[NeverLiveItDown the incompetent weakling who allowed England to descend into Civil War because he couldn't control his nobles]].

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: There was some controversy at the time of the film's release due to its alleged similarity to the mid-20th-century novel ''No Bed For Bacon'' by Caryl Brahms and S J Simon.

** According to some, this was what ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' was snubbed in favor of, allegedly due to a campaign by Miramax. A campaign so effective, in fact, the Academy members are said to have actually booed [[SoCoolItsAwesome the latter film]]. Needless to say, the film gets A LOT of hate for said snub.
