** The full retard speech is hilarious for the fact that Penn won a Oscar (albeit not for a handicapped person, but still) the same year the film was released. And also that Robert Downey Jr. himself got a nomination for his role in this film.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: {{Tom Cruise}}'s character surprisingly steals the entire movie as the most {{badass}} producer ever filmed. [[http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2010/06/09/tom-cruise-les-grossman/ He's even getting his own movie.]]

* GeniusBonus: The song that plays while Lazarus & Maguire suggestively fondle each other's rosaries & react to each other is no generic techno track. It's "Sadeness (Part 1)" by Music/{{Enigma}}, a chart-topping single from 1990. Its use is no mistake: The song, in French with Gregorian chants in Latin, criticizes the sexual & religious views of the legendary MarquisDeSade, an AnythingThatMoves French nobleman known as a figure of the FrenchRevolution for his utterly pornographic & blasphemous works. When he wasn't screwing everything with a hole in it - or in some cases [[BodyHorror making holes for himself to screw]] - he was blaspheming against the Catholic Church. Far from being generic, the choice of music had to be deliberate.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Well... okay. While there are a few instances of this, most of the time it's more crossing the line and going on for about seventeen more miles, never looking back.

** Let's be real: if this movie didn't cross the line multiple times, '''it would not be HALF as funny and awesome as it is'''.

** Robert Downey Jr as well, as this and ''Film/IronMan'' are considered to be the two films that made him undergo a CareerResurrection.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: One of the fastest examples ever; while the accusations that the film was mocking mentally handicapped people were generally misplaced, the furore created by the whole thing is credited in having played a big part in rapidly propelling the word "retard" from being commonly used as a synonym for "dumb" to being considered an extremely offensive term on par with most racial or homophobic insults. About the only reason why it's still considered even vaguely acceptable to quote the "full retard" speech these days is because it CrossesTheLineTwice.
