A lot of the humor at Ted's expense may seem less funny when one remembers that his actor, Charles Rocket, committed suicide some years later.
Mac and Valerie's romance may also be a littler harder to watch when one remembers that their own real life romance ended about two years after this film, although they reportedly managed to stay on good terms.
Idiot Plot: Alien looking for space porn crashes ship in pool of Valley Girl with boyfriend problems. Boyfriend continues to be a problem until she realizes she's in love with the captain of the alien ship.
Justified, as the film acknowledges most of the characters are either idiots or loveable ditzes, including the aliens.
