YMMV: Con Air
  • Memetic Mutation: The movie is rather memetic just for existing and being a really cheesy movie.
    • "Put the bunny back in the box!"
    • HOW DO I LIVE WITHOUT YOU?
    • Why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?
    • Make a move and the bunny gets it!
  • Retroactive Recognition: Pinball is played by none other than Dave Chappelle.
  • Rooting For The Cons: While the bad guys - Cyrus especially - are dangerous criminals, there's a moment or two where the audience can't help but cheer for the bad guys. Specifically when they set up a spirited (and humorous) defense of the airfield and when it turns out their financial backer Cindino was going to double-cross them. It helps that even among the cons they despise the likes of rapist Johnny23, and fear the likes of Garland who by the movie's end seems to have willingly given up the evil lifestyle.
  • So Bad, It's Good
    • Narm Charm: It's as dumb as the day is long, but everyone's performances (especially Malkovich and Cage) and the way that this is a stupid action movie from seasoned experts in making stupid action movies gives it a certain charm. Nicholas Cage's accent is particularly bad-good ("bunneh").
  • Superlative Dubbing: The Mexican Spanish dub is a textbook example of how a very good dub can turn a very cheesy movie into something worth watching, since most of the voice cast are well known veterans in voice acting there.
  • Vindicated by History: Or at least among a small circle. Several people only watched the film due to it being a fundamental part of the plot in Homestuck.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Again, more or less courtesy of its use in Homestuck.
    • In Mexico, it's basically watch it for the dub.
