* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Any scene featuring the Bellerians.
* ClicheStorm: You think?
* CultClassic: Hell, yes.
* FanNickname: "Lobster Guy" for Kalgan's bodyguard, who wears crinkly red armor plates that make him look like a lobster. And is played by a guy named Guy.
** MysteryScienceTheater3000 made a RunningGag out of making up nicknames for main character Dave Ryder, or rather ''Big [=McLarghuge=]''!
** Lea is known as "Grandma-Daughter" & her dad is "Captain Santa".
* FetishRetardant: Lea's dance scene.
--> '''[[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Crow]]:''' She's presenting like a mandrill!
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The fact that all of the space shots are recycled from the old ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|CLassic}}'' is pretty funny to begin with, but it all got even funnier -- or at least, that bit more ironic -- when the final season of ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' had a major arc involving, yes, a mutiny in space aboard ''Galactica'', which was also spearheaded by a power-hungry Machiavellian type and a trusted member of the crew who walks with a pronounced limp. Plus, the Captain bears an uncanny resemblance to the ''Series/{{Galactica 1980}}'' version of Adama.
** All the jokes about how the inside of the ship looks like a brewery are even funnier in light of the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film, in which the engineering section of the Enterprise ''really is'' a Budweiser brewery.
* IkeaErotica: The sex scene between Dave & Lea can be seen as a visual representation of this. It doesn't really show anything and is rather boring (though a brief glimpse of Grandma-Daughter nipple was cut from the MST3K version).
-->'''Crow:''' Uh, could you wrap it up, Chunky? There's a tour coming through!
* MartyStu: Ryan has traits of this.
* MisBlamed: David Winters is credited as the Director despite the fact that Neal Sundstrom really directed most of the film and a third, uncredited director was responsible for the stuff with the Bellerians.
* {{Narm}}: All over the place, but one moment where Ryder screams before jumping out of the speeder stands out.
* NauseaFuel: Plenty to go around.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Much of the action takes place in a treatment plant with visible sunlight. Bricks in the walls are visible in many of the shots.
** Not to mention the Enforcers' "speeders," which are either golf carts, floor waxers or "[[{{FantasyIsland}} Hervé Villechaize's]] death car[s]" capable of "reaching speeds of 3!"
** Even the titles aren't immune to this trope, looking as if they were produced on a Commodore Amiga Video Toaster by someone using it for the very first time.
** Plus they had to swipe footage from BattlestarGalactica! *sheesh*! Also, many of the costumes are so stupid that even a 1950's b-movie sci-fi character would be embarrassed to wear them!
* {{Squick}}. Lea's [[SarcasmMode totally-not-obvious seduction]] of a pudgy henchmen.
* TheyJustDidntCare: Continuity errors all over the place, most glaring in one instance where a supporting character who was just murdered appears as an extra in the very next scene.
* UnfortunateImplications: The crew has the initials of the "Southern Sun" as in insignia on their uniforms. Good idea, except those initials happen to be "SS", as in the Nazi secret police SS. Not only that, they're also written in the typical lightning-rune way, and there aren't any crewmembers who ''aren't'' obviously caucasian.
** Also the moral of the entire movie seems to be that, if you're opposing the law (no matter how oppressive, illogical or poorly written it is), then you're definitely in the wrong and deserve to be burned to death horrifically by some Aryan dude.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: (Lt. Lamont)
** Doesn't help that the actor/actress is named Billy Second.
* WTHCastingAgency: James Ryan, an accomplished martial artist, is cast in the role of a crippled man who is barely able to walk.
* TheWoobie: Poor Steve.
** Lt. Lemont...though this is undone by her amazing and unexplained return from the dead.
