* CantUnHearIt: Try to listen to a normal version of "Puttin' On The Ritz" without doing an impression of Peter Boyle as the Monster.



** Also, I dare you to listen to a normal version of "Puttin' On The Ritz" without doing an impression of Peter Boyle as the Monster.



* WeirdAlEffect: It's a really faithful AffectionateParody of ''Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}}'' and ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' - to the point watching ''Young Frankenstein'' before makes many scenes in the originals hard to take seriously.

** The performance of "Puttin' On The Ritz" in this movie is one of the best known in spite of the song being written nearly fifty years prior.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Would you believe that it's entirely because of ''this'' film that the character of the deformed lab assistant is known as Igor? The character was named Fritz in the 1931 film, while Bela Lugosi played a completely different character named Ygor in its sequel ''Son of Frankenstein'', which was transferred to the Fritz counterpart in this film.

Added DiffLines:

** The Italian translation of 'There wolf, there castle', 'Lupo Ululà e Castellu U l'u lì!' is a very famous quote in Italy. Even people who haven't seen the movie know the pun.

** The DVD commentary. Brooks starts crying during the credits over all the friends he has since lost.

** The DVD commentary. Brooks starts crying during the credits over all the friends he has since lost. [[HarsherInHindsight It's only gotten worse]] as in August 2016, Gene Wilder passed away.

Added DiffLines:

** The "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis It Could Work!]]" line is a minor one in Italy, where it was translated as "Si può fare!", which has the more general meaning of "We can do it!" and is often used in a variety of contexts as an encouragement.

Added DiffLines:

** Every punchline is a quotable wonder. The movie is up there with ''BlazingSaddles'' as one of Mel Brooks' most-quoted films.

** Like many of Brooks' films, it's a massive FountainOfMemes.

!!The film:



* BrokenBase: Was TheMusical a worthy adaptation ''and'' successor to ''Film/TheProducers'', or a lame corporate shill [[WereStillRelevantDammit attempting to keep Mel Brooks relevant]]?
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: From TheMusical, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofhKUGiKH78 "Life, Life"]] really stands out as a genuinely dramatic and impressive number among all the silliness.
