* ActorAllusion:
** Multiple layers of it in a single short conversation. First, Happy asks Chubbs why a guy his size isn't playing a "real sport" like football or something. (Carl Weathers, who played Chubbs, used to be a pro football player). Chubbs answers the question by claiming that his mother wouldn't let him play anything dangerous. Happy comments that maybe that's a good idea. (Weathers also played Apollo Creed in the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' movies, who died in the ring during the fourth film). Then, Happy discovers that Chubbs is missing a hand, and in ''Film/{{Predator}}'' Weathers' character had an arm cut off just before being killed.
** The character of Mr. Larson is referred to as 'Frankenstein' at one point. Richard Kiel who plays him was in a Monkees episode as a 'Frankenstein' type creature.
* BeamMeUpScotty: Some people, particularly ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' fans, think Bob Barker says "The price is wrong, bitch!", even though it was Happy when he thinks he's beaten Bob in his brawl. After the fight, Bob says "Now you've had enough... bitch."
* ColbertBump: Because of Bob Barker's cameo, ratings for ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' rose considerably amongst college-age viewers.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The NHL Shop has sold [[http://shop.nhl.com/search/hockey%20stick%20putters hockey stick putters]] for many years.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** The JerkAss senior citizen home attendant is Creator/BenStiller.
** Chubbs is played by Carl Weathers, who was featured in the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' films as Apollo Creed [[spoiler:Interestingly, like Apollo, Chubbs dies, only he falls out of a window after seeing the one-eyed alligator's head.]]
** Happy's ex-boss is [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe Jaws]].
** Julie Bowen, now known for ''{{Series/Ed}}'', ''Series/ModernFamily'', and ''{{Series/Lost}}'' also stars.
** The guy that keeps yelling "Jackass!" [[Film/BackToTheFuture worked for Western Union in 1955]].
** [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]] playing [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Bob Barker]].
** One of the movers near the beginning of the film is played by [[Series/MadTV Will Sasso]].
** For the golf fans, Lee Trevino would like to remind you that Grizzly Adams in fact ''did'' have a beard.
* OldShame: Lee Trevino said had he read the script and seen the salty language, he would've passed. One would presume he watched the movie while doing his signature disbelieving head shake.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BruceCampbell was almost Shooter [=McGavin=].
** Initially, Bob Barker didn't want to appear in the fight against Happy until he was informed he was going to win.
