* ActorAllusion:
** Nathan Lane is openly homosexual. [[note]]Though he wasn't out at the time the movie was released.[[/note]]
*** He also plays a guy who' [[Disney/TheLionKing dresses in drag (he doesn't do the hula, though)]].
** Robin Williams dips into his trademark JohnWayne impression at one point.
** In the Japanese dub, Norio Imamura (Albert) voiced [[Franchise/OnePiece Emporio Ivankov]], who is a crossdresser.
* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Due to the nature of the story, the director made Nathan Lane and Robin Williams ''promise'' to do one take exactly as scripted before they could go wild in retakes. This is bound to happen.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the Japanese dub, [[Creator/YoshitoYasuhara Armand is]] [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Shinomori Aoshi]] and Albert is voiced by the Japanese comedian Norio Imamura, a.k.a. '''[[Franchise/OnePiece Emporio Ivankov]]'''.
** [[Creator/RyuseiNakao Agador is]] [[Anime/DragonBallZ Frieza]].
* DawsonCasting: 32-year-old Calista Flockhart unconvincingly plays a 19-year-old. (Being so waifish, she could pass as a senior or graduate student, but come on.)
* ThrowItIn: Robin Williams and Nathan Lane had to promise to do one take exactly as scripted before the producers would allow them to go off ad-libbing.
