* 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.

* 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).

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

* 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 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.
* HarsherInHindsight: Kevin Sandusky, just for sharing a last name with an infamous child molester.

** The [[MemeticMutation full retard]] speech is hilarous 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.

** The "I'm a dude" line (again by RDJ's character) ends up as this thanks to two of his subsequent roles: [[spoiler: first was his "stealthy" pursuit (fake nose and all) in ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', and second was with the reveal of [[Comic/IronMan Iron Man's]] [[MetaMecha Hulkbuster]] armor]] in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''.
