YMMV: Hot Shots!
- Acceptable Targets: Since it's a Jim Abrahams creation, pretty much every group under the sun - yes, even Native Americans (in 1991!).
- Acceptable Political Targets: Saddam Hussein. It was 1991 after all.
- Crosses the Line Twice: Possibly Dead Meat's death, but for sure his funeral.
- Ho Yay: Wash out is very interested in Topper from the beginning of their acquaintance, he wants to say goodbye to Topper when he is fired, and when Topper manages the action and comes out in one piece, the others cheer, but he bursts out in tears of joy. Not to mention running to him with open arms in the happy end.
- Retroactive Recognition: Washout is played by Jon Cryer, who would later reunite with Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.
- Dead Meat is William O'Leary, later to be recognized as Tim's brother Marty on Home Improvement. His wife is Heidi Swedberg, who'll go on to be Susan Ross on Seinfeld.
- Mailman is Ryan Stiles, who not only starred with Cryer and Sheen on Two and a Half Men, but also was in the sequel in a larger role.
