* ActingForTwo: Creator/EddieMurphy just loves doing it.
* AwesomeDearBoy: Creator/EddieMurphy signed on purely to work with Creator/SteveMartin.
* DuelingStarsMovie: Let's face it, it's got both Creator/SteveMartin and Creator/EddieMurphy.
* LifeImitatesArt: The production of the fictional ''Chubby Rain'' has some aspects in common with the later production of the real life cult movie ''Film/TheRoom''. These include the director financing the film with his own money, gratuitous nudity being used as a selling point, filming without a permit, the actors thinking the film may never see the light of day and a Hollywood-style premiere that ends with huge applause (though perhaps not for the reason the filmmakers intended).
* StarringAStarAsAStar: Occasional action star (and comedy superstar) Creator/EddieMurphy plays action superstar Kit Ramsey, who happens to hew to a Scientology-like religion.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The role of Kit Ramsey was originally written for Creator/KeanuReeves.
* WrittenByCastMember: Creator/SteveMartin wrote the script.
