* 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 and religious views of the legendary MarquisDeSade, an AnythingThatMoves French nobleman known as a figure of the FrenchRevolution for his utterly pornographic and blasphemous works. When he wasn't screwing everything with a hole in it - or in some cases 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.

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

* 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.

** "Everyone's gay once and awhile! This is Hollywood!". Creator/TomHardy apparently [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/28/inception-star-tom-hardy_n_662907.html shares this opinion]].

* DudeNotFunny: The film had some sort of record for use of slurs on those with disabilities. Support groups and the disabled were angry and pushed for the banning of such offensive terminology, with the word being very much cut down if not virtually extinguished in future media.

** A small one as the film is distributed by [=DreamWorks=] and stars both Creator/JackBlack and Creator/JayBaruchel, both of whom went on to voice the main character in two of [=DreamWorks=] most successful animated franchises, ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon.''

** The "Satan's Alley" trailer is even funnier after ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' had Iron Man acting as a mentor to Spider-Man (albeit with the latter having changed actors).
