* BaseBreaker: The jury is still out whether or not this movie is ''better'' than ''Film/TheFrenchConnection'' or simply one of Friedkin's best.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: To modern audiences, it can seem like a litany of every [[TheEighties '80s]] and [[TheNineties '90s]] cop movie trope/cliche eventually parodied in ''Film/LastActionHero'' and the [=McBain=] movies-within-the-show on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' - from [[{{Retirony}} the cop days from retirement who gets killed on the job]] to the [[HollywoodCalifornia totally tubular LA setting]] to the exact line ([[BeamMeUpScotty ''not'' uttered in]] ''Film/LethalWeapon''), "I'm getting too old for this shit." Except when you look closer, it turns out this movie predates [[TropeCodifier ''Lethal Weapon'']] by two years and would have been well into production around the same time ''MiamiVice'' debuted.

* LesYay: Serena and Bianca have a bit of an unspoken relationship throughout the movie, culminating in a ''ThelmaAndLouise'' moment at the very end. But before that, [[spoiler:they actually have sex. And Masters knows]].
