* HeyItsThatGuy: Pretty much the casts of both films; the sequel almost imploded the universe for having [[Film/TheMightyDucks Gordon Bombay]], [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]], and [[Series/{{CSI}} Gil Grissom]] all in the same film in dominant roles.
** TomCruise is one of the Murphy gang's gunmen during the final shootout of the first movie.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The first movie accounts for one of the very few Creator/JamesHorner scores to be thrown out.
