Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByCable: Putting the movie up against the huge blockbuster season of 1989 did it no favors at the box office, but it found a bigger and more appreciative audience on home video.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: In the Spatula City ad, one of the gags is Sy Greenbloom saying, "I liked their spatulas so much, I bought the company." To younger viewers, this is merely a nonsensical gag, but it's actually based on a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qf22bddvLnc famous ad campaign for Remington from 1979.]]

** Gandhi 2 is an ActionizedSequel to a film about the life of a famous religious figure. This is before ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' did the same for Jesus.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the premise of a network that broadcasts series or movies that no other channel would broadcast sounds very similar to that of many streaming systems such as Creator/{{Netflix}}, Hulu and others, which broadcast series or movies that no other channel would, albeit neither as insane as the movie does.

** While American TV has a watershed (which America calls "safe harbor") it's not really enforced that much since it's a big country with four time zones, but late-night is still a tad more lenient.

** While American TV has a watershed (which America calls "safe harbor") it's not really enforced that much since it's a big country with four six time zones, zones (nine if you count territories), but late-night is still a tad more lenient. lenient.
*** Of course, a small rural UHF station would likely be broadcasting to only one time zone.

* HarsherInHindsight: It's difficult to watch a movie in which Weird Al is best friends with Michael Richards and Victoria Jackson after he's admitted to [[WeUsedToBeFriends cutting ties with both of them]] once their respective racist tendencies came out (Richards with his racist rand, Victoria Jackson's [[ConspiracyTheorist "Obama is a secret Muslim!" tirade]]).

* BillingDisplacement: Most posters and other promotional materials would give one the impression that Victoria Jackson's role is significantly greater than Michael Richards'. She was more famous than Richards at the time, what with ''Series/Seinfeld'' only having just come out.

** Yankovic probably feared the viewers would have seen Fletcher as this had he [[spoiler:gotten arrested for kidnapping]] so soon after [[spoiler:the homeless man revealed his role in Fletcher's downfall]]. The old bum even gives Fletcher a warm hug and offers a shoulder to cry on. ''Awwwww...''
