* OlderThanTheyThink: This film actually predated the first ''Film/{{Austin Powers|International Man of Mystery}}'' film by a year. However, most viewers felt it came across more like a fourth ''Film/TheNakedGun'' film than a ''Film/JamesBond'' spoof, meaning that ''Austin Powers'' actually ended up feeling fresher than this film.
** It certainly didn't help the fact that they casted LeslieNielsen as ''the freaking main character''!

film. It certainly didn't help the fact that they casted LeslieNielsen cast Creator/LeslieNielsen as ''the freaking main character''!character''!
** Like ''Austin Powers'', the film opens with a flashback showing the lead character working with his female partner, and then said partner's daughter follows her into the spy world following a TimeSkip (albeit Barbara Dahl ends up being a DistressedDamsel, whereas Vanessa Kensington in ''Austin Powers'' was a HypercompetentSidekick).

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The Director cutting off Steele's flashback about Barbara Dahl. Sadly, this may be the only one.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Bill Conti's score utilizes numerous parodies of famous movie music, including ''HomeAlone'', ''Film/TrueLies'', ''Film/{{ET|The Extraterrestrial}}'', ''Film/InTheLineOfFire'', and ''Film/{{Speed}}''.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Of all the films that [[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg]] actually had a significant part in writing -- their credit on the first ''Film/ScaryMovie'' apparently being mostly for contractual reasons -- this is the only one that even comes close to being decent.

The fact that they didn't direct nor write the final screenplay -- Jason's father Rick Friedberg did -- probably helped.
