* There's not really a trope for this, but the box for the VHS release talked. (Press a button on it and it said "Wanna date?" in very low fidelity.)
* Joe Bob Briggs tells a great story that when this movie was sent to the MPAA for rating, the censor sent it back to director Frank Henenlotter with a letter saying "Tell you what, how about we refund your screening fee, you take this movie back, and we're both going to act like it never happened, because we don't have an "S" rating." Henenlotter replied "S...you mean for 'Sexy'?" The MPAA man said "NO! FOR SH*T!"
