The Stallone-Schwarzenegger jabs continue. In Slater's world, Stallone is The Terminator. Danny cannot believe it. More directly, the fact that F. Murray Abraham played Salieri in Amadeus is mentioned, then it becomes a plot point.
Hell, even Def Leppard's "Two Steps Behind" got better exposure.
Even today, "Big Gun" by AC/DC gets airtime on classic rock stations.
Christmas Rushed: It was rushed to open for the 1993 big summer movie season, to the point that post-production on the film was only finished a few weeks before its initial release.
Contractual Immortality: Lampshaded. Danny tries to invoke this this with Benedict by playing Chicken with him while Danny is on a girl's bike, and Benedict is in a limo. Danny kept saying that because he's the hero, it has to work, but backs off at the last second after realizing he's just the Plucky Comic Relief, and this trope does not apply to him.
Danny also tries to remind Jack of this when he tries to play Chicken in the real world.
Also lampshaded when Danny tells Jack he can't die until the box office grosses wane.
Perhaps not even then-the Reaper says that Jack isn't on any of his lists (which makes him curious enough to investigate).note Then again, fictional characters are immortal.
The first film to feature Columbia Pictures' current Vanity Plate, as well as the first film with Sony's Dolby and DTS counterpart, Sony Dynamic Digital Sound (which, much like this filmed, crashed and burned in the theaters; it barely exists today).
