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, director James Cameron was ''not'' sympathetic to their cause.

** Arab villains. Downplayed in that one of Arnold's colleagues is an intelligent Arab-American, who at least in his scenes qualifies as the OnlySaneMan.

** When asked during an interview whether his wife was bothered by him sitting there watching Jamie Lee Curtis strip, Arnold said that she asked him about it and he assured her "[[BlatantLies Honey, I hated every hour of it]]!"

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler:Before Harry kills Salim by firing a missile at Salim's reinforcements,]] he tells a frightened Salim, "You're fired." Indeed, we might be seeing Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger saying that phrase more often once he replaces Creator/DonaldTrump in ''Series/TheApprentice''.

* RetroactiveRecognition: There's a reason [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Faith]] and [[{{Dollhouse}} Echo]] are such BadAss {{Action Girl}}s: they're Ahnold's daughter. Anyone wanting to know what a younger Faith might be like...Dana nails it cold.

* UnfortunateImplications: Siskel and Ebert were among those who became quite uncomfortable with Harry's manipulations of Helen during the entire middle portion of the film, all of which are played for laughs.
** You really have to wonder what would have happened if the terrorists hadn't broken in right after Helen discovered the truth.
