* EndingFatigue: The movie continues a full fifteen minutes after the villains are arrested and the conflict is resolved. One US TV broadcast ended the movie just moments later when Emma and Simon reunite at the country house.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The film uses the alias of Leslie Charteris' greatest character. And that is all. (That Charteris's name does not appear on the credits says pretty much everything.)

* CompleteMonster: Tretiak created a heating oil shortage by hiding it in a massive tank beneath his mansion in order to convince the populace that the current government was a failure. Doing so killed quite a number of people. He did it all for power and to raid the treasury.
