* HeyItsThatGuy - Lots of examples.
** [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] is Smiley the giggling assassin.
** [[MarriedWithChildren Al Bundy]] is Lieutenant Amos.
** [[TwinPeaks Jerry Horne]] is Sam the Sleazebag.
** Jazz is played by [[DumbAndDumber Lauren Holly]].
** [[Series/{{Californication}} Marcy Runkle]] is one of the Pussycats.
** Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe plays the brief role of singer Bobby Black. Musicians Morris Day, Sheila E. and Tone Loc also have small roles.
* VideoFullOfFilmClips - Billy Idol's video for his hit single "Cradle of Love" featured several clips from this movie.
** Although this song was featured in the movie, due to Andrew Dice Clay being banned from MTV the music video was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cradle_of_Love not able to show him]] (with the exception of the stylized painting). Using a song and music video as part of a movie's advertising campaign doesn't work very well when the audience doesn't see the title character as played by the top-billed actor. Lots of people remember [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24FT3u-lhg4 the video]], particularly straight men who were teenagers around the time it was released. Relatively few people remember that the song was part of this movie's soundtrack.
** "Cradle of Love" was also Billy Idol's ''last'' hit single. Granted, Idol was largely thought of as an [[TheEighties 80's]] musician, so his career was likely doomed by the [[TheNineties 90's]] anyway, given the sharp turn pop culture took only a year or two later (same goes for Andrew Dice Clay). Nevertheless, it has been speculated that this movie worked as a CreatorKiller for not only Clay, but Idol as well. Renny Harlin, on the other hand, still had a few years before he would suffer the [[Film/CutthroatIsland same]] [[Film/TheLongKissGoodnight fate.]]
