* ActorAllusion: At one point Lucky Day (played by Steve Martin) has to recite a magic phrase consisting of gibberish. The last two syllables are "Hoff-HARR", which is how you pronounce the last name of Steve Martin's character in ''TheManWithTwoBrains''.
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Series/CriminalMinds David Rossi]] fires the Amigos.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheCritic Jay Sherman]] pitches the Cochise movie to the Amigos.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Lionel Hutz]] has the Amigos kicked out of the studio mansion and their clothes repossessed.
** Jefe the bandit lieutenant would later become known as UglyBetty 's Dad.
* ShoutOut: When Lucky Day is trying to get the others' attention while sneaking back into the studio, he spends the whole scene in front of a billboard for ''The Dueling Cavalier'', the film Lockwood & Lamont are making in ''Film/SinginInTheRain'' before the transition to sound film forces them to remake it as a musical.
