* HilariousInHindsight: At one point, Wallace complains that Andre's attitude is just [[Film/ThePrincessBride inconceivable]] to him.
** Bonus points for him working with [[Wrestling/AndreTheGiant another Andre]].
** Shawn's pronunciation of the word in this film is actually what got him the part of Vizzini -- ''[[Film/ThePrincessBride Princess Bride]]'' casting director Janet Hirshenson saw ''My Dinner With Andre'' during the former film's pre-production phase and decided she had to have him in the role based on that line delivery alone.
* LoveItOrHateIt: This film is either really interesting or really boring.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Played with; the two discuss some fairly high-falutin' subjects, but the movie itself is fairly easy to understand and follow; it's just two guys sitting in a restaurant talking. If anything, Wally believes True Art Is Comprehensible.
