* HilariousInHindsight: At several points through the film, characters demand payment in Canadian money, since the USA's economy is in the toilet. The Loonie actually did outstrip the greenback for a little while in 2008.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Gramercy threw its backing behind this film instead of ''MysteryScienceTheater3000: TheMovie''.
** Ironically, one scene has the villain [[FugitiveAlien trying to kill the hero with a forklift]], [[MemeticMutation olay!]]
