!!The original novel:
* ValuesDissonance: The whole "Susan getting raped" subplot, full stop. Not only is the attack itself [[GratuitousRape completely superfluous to the plot]], but Susan's reaction to it (she sympathizes with her attacker, to the point of mourning his death, planning to meet his parents, and ''hoping she's carrying his rape-child'') could only be the product of a male author from a pre-feminist era.

* HilariousInHindsight: LeslieNielsen playing it straight as the captain of the ''Poseidon'' in a disaster movie, seven years before ''Film/{{Airplane}}!'', a spoof of disaster movies. The [[LeslieNielsenSyndrome Syndrome]] was still [[Series/PoliceSquad a decade away]].

!!The 2005 TV movie:
* WhatAnIdiot: The Cruise Director, who gives away Rogo's purpose as a sea marshal, and insists that everyone stay inside the dining room, even after it's pointed out that the ship will inevitably sink.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Near the end of the film, the survivors have to cross over a pit of fire via a narrow bridge. The only ones who don't make it are [[spoiler: Badawi, who masterminded the terrorist plot, and Shoshanna, who was Richard's mistress]].
