** During the live tweet of the "Every Simpsons Ever" marathon on FXX, it was pointed out that Homer on the wrecking ball was an idea used by MileyCyrus for her infamous "Wrecking Ball" music video (only there was no nudity involved with the Homer version). This was obviously a joke, but this time (and the time Homer was riding a wrecking ball on "Sideshow Bob Roberts") are funnier in light of this[[note]]Also, twerking Miley Cyrus's way wasn't invented until 6 years after the movie, but that's neither here nor there[[/note]].

** The "Itchy and Scratchy" cartoon from the beginning shows Itchy becoming President of the United States with UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton as his Vice-President. At the time, Hillary was expected to be the Democratic Party's 2008 presidential candidate, but ended up losing the Democratic Primaries to then-Senator UsefulNotes/BarackObama. Then, in 2016, Hillary ran again and became the Democratic Party's candidate, but lost to UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the Republican Party's candidate.

** About the supposedly innocent people, they also crossed it when they decided to hang the Simpsons family as well. Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney stand out in particular for tying a noose for Maggie. A BABY who had NOTHING to do with Homer polluting the lake.

** The President's line, "I was elected to LEAD, not to READ," is EERILY similar to Herman Cain stating, after his Libya incident, that the United States "needs a leader not a reader."

** He crosses it even further when he attempts to [[spoiler: shoot Homer, but not before Maggie drops a boulder on his head]].

** He crosses it even further when he attempts to [[spoiler: shoot Homer, Homer and [[WouldHurtAChild Bart]] for no other reason, than to spite him for ruining his plan, but not before Maggie drops a boulder on his head]].

** In the short scene with Creator/TomHanks he comments that "the government has run out of credibility and is borrowing some of mine".

* FridgeBrilliance: The blockade around the lake is supposedly idiot-proof, and yet Homer can circumvent it (well, smash it anyway). But that's the thing: as shown by the episode "HomR", Homer isn't an idiot, at least not a natural one.

** Cargill's explanation for him going mad with power seems strongly related to real-life people abusing power to make others listen to their beliefs.



* StrawmanHasAPoint: Cargill's "mad with power" speech may seem crazy and unrealistic, but he's more or less completely right, as people will be more likely to listen to those in charge and have power over those who don't, regardless if either are crazy or not.
