* BestKnownForTheFanservice: One of the film's most famous moments is when Creator/JamieLeeCurtis performs a shadowy striptease for her husband. The CatFight in the backseat between her and Tia Carrere is very memorable too.

* OvershadowedByControversy: In 2018 Eliza Dushku accused the film's stunt coordinator Joel Kramer of sexually abusing her, and then threatening to kill her by sabotaging a stunt if she told anyone. And remember, she was 12 years old at the time. James Cameron was quick to say if he'd had any idea about it, he would have had "no mercy" in dealing out just desserts.

* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Just about every Arab villain is depicted as a bumbling, cowardly, cartoonishly evil character, who's sole purpose is to die in some horrific over the top fashion. Suffice it to say, Creator/JamesCameron was ''not'' sympathetic to their cause. The film did receive some criticism for portraying the terrorists as "stereotypically" Muslim. This was 7 years before 9/11. See HarsherInHindsight.

* CounterpartComparison: Creator/CharltonHeston plays an grizzled old EyepatchOfPower-wearing veteran who heads up a super-secret spy organization, who may or may not be a ShoutOut to ComicBook/NickFury.

* FoeYay: Harry Tasker and Juno Skinner. While in his spy persona, he seduces her with a very sexual tango while dodging detection from the bad guys, before either of them knew who the other really was. When they both learn of each other's identities, there is an amount of one-sided FoeYay from Juno towards Harry, including alleging that they had a affair and kissing him in front of his wife Helen to hurt her.

* BrokenBase: The famous sequence of Harry forcing Helen to perform a striptease for who she thinks is a complete stranger. Some have criticised the scene for being creepy and misogynistic - not helped by the fact that James Cameron was going through a divorce at the time, leading to some speculation over whether the scene was CatharsisFactor for him. Others are more accepting of it, including Jamie Lee Curtis herself; she says she views the scene as Helen taking control and being sexy in her own right - pointing out that Helen could have left and walked out if she wanted to, which she did when Harry actually made advances on her.

** Dedicating the entire second act to Arnold suspecting his wife is cheating on him, given what he did to Maria Shriver. He was apparently asked about watching Jamie Lee Curtis striptease, to which he responded "[[BlatantLies Honey, I hated every hour of it]]".

** There's a conversation where the Crimson Jihad boss is said to break off his former group to form a newer, more vicious terrorist organization. It was played as a joke then, but then come 2014, when al-Qaeda's franchise in Iraq and Syria broke off its parent organization and set out to out-jihad it.
