* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Has Honey really come down with a case of StockholmSyndrome, or is she just pretending so that she can get out of there alive?
* CrazyAwesome: Cecil and all the Sprocket Holes qualify, but Raven, especially, who escapes in the end by hiding in the back of a hearse.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: At one point, Cherish tells Honey, "When I was ten years old, my ''entire family'' fucked me under the Christmas tree!" Even by John Waters standards, this is a doozy.
** Cecil dismisses her claim as [[UnreliableNarrator "recovered memories"]].
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome[=/=]CrowningMomentOfFunny: Where to begin...
** The opening scene with the Sprocket Holes kidnapping Honey Whitlock and causing a riot in the process.
*** Raven randomly punching that guy out.
** The porn theater viewers helping Cecil, Honey, and Co. escape by keeping Teamsters at bay by...well, being perverts.
** The entirety of the film's climax.
---> '''Cecil:''' Principal photography has been completed!\\
'''Cherish:''' We can fuck now?\\
'''Cecil:''' From here to Timbuktu!
* EvilIsSexy: Oh God, Raven!
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The scene where Cecil and his Sprocket Holes shoot people in a movie theater while kidnapping Honey Whitlock might of been funny back then, but after the shootings at an Aurora theater showing Film/TheDarkKnightRises, not so much.
** The film is a comedy about film terrorist. [[TheWarOnTerror A year and a month later]]...
* HilariousInHindsight: The actor who plays [[StraightGay Petie]] will be playing a certain villain (not ComicBook/LexLuthor) in the next ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' movie. At one point in the movie's climax, we actually see a guy, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFyHTU8tg_0 well]]...
* MagnificentBastard: Cecil himself.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The title for the film came from the nickname given to John Waters by the headline of an interview; the plot idea came from an incident where ''Film Threat Magazine'' told its readers to attack the readers of ''Premier Magazine''...and some of those readers '''actually did'''.
** To a lesser extent, the kidnapping of Honey and her eventual siding with her captors, is similar to that of Patty Hearst's own kidnapping ordeal; Hearst herself appeared in this film (as Fidget's mother) and has appeared in every one of John Waters' other films after ''Film/CryBaby''.
** Also, [[spoiler:Honey setting her hair on fire]] was inspired by something Waters asked Mink Stole to do while filming ''Film/PinkFlamingos'' (which she refused to do).
