YMMV: Meet Dave
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The Executive Meddling Bill Corbett had to deal with, in light of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 sketches of Crow suffering it regarding his own screenplay (at the time just a Take That to the meddling the show's film adaptation faced).
- Memetic Mutation: A gigantic parade float of Eddie Murphy's head made the rounds on Cracked and various image boards.
- Moral Event Horizon: Number 2 crosses it by expelling the Captain and Number 3 from the ship.
- Retroactive Recognition: Ed Helms played the villain in this film, just one year before The Hangover made him an internationally recognized actor.
- Uncanny Valley: Dave's walk on the coast.
