* Sequelitis: It seems that every movie is relying on sexual/toilet humor more than the last, and the first film is the only one considered uncontroversially great.

** The repeated torment Nordberg (played by O.J. Simpson) suffers is either this or becomes [[HilariousInHindsight even funnier]], depending on your viewpoint. Especially the line that he "wouldn't hurt a fly" spoken by his on-screen wife. In the network TV version, when Frank, after unknowingly shutting down Nordberg's life support system and not noticing where the rushing hospital staff are headed, says "Just be glad you're not that guy's wife."

* VindicatedByHistory: In ''The Naked Gun 2 1/2'', a museum put the Hubble Space Telescope, which had been launched with a flawed reflector mirror, with the ''Hindenberg'' and the ''Titanic'' as one of the biggest disasters in human history. Corrective optics installed in 1993 fixed the problem, and it's now considered one of the most successful satellites ever launched.

Added DiffLines:

** In the third film, a scene at a Los Angeles high school features every kid with a gun. Not so funny given the myriad of school shootings over the years.

** Gorbachev at the Beirut council saying the Americans "[believe he's] a nice guy", due to the film being released before his policies of ''perestroika'' and ''glasnost'' unintentionally led to the fall of the IronCurtain, ironically improving his reputation in the West even more.
** Frank "[shooting] the bastards" in the Shakespeare-in-the-Park's production of ''[[Theatre/JuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]]'' is now this thanks to the same production's recent controversy due to its perceived violence by right wing activists.

** In ''2½'', Frank casually mentions that he and Jane are ancient history, like the Democratic party. Guess who got elected only one year after this movie came out.
