* HilariousInHindsight: While holding Jack & Joan at gunpoint in a cave, Ralph quips that they should all leave "before Franchise/{{Batman}} comes home." More like "before ''Film/BatmanReturns''", eh Creator/DannyDeVito?
* HollywoodHomely: They actually went to great lengths to try and make Creator/KathleenTurner look less attractive before her adventure.
* NightmareFuel [[spoiler: The horrible scream by the main villain as his hand gets nipped off by a croc.]]
** [[spoiler:While discussing the death of Elaine's husband and asking if the authorities ever found the body, Joan says "Just the one... ''piece''." Have fun guessing which ''piece'' they found. Possibly {{Fingore}} since they had to identify him ''some''how.]]
** Zolo himself, period. An intelligent, brutal, cruel and sadistic psychopath with a private army at his beck and call, and one who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. No wonder Ira and Ralph, who are criminals themselves, are ''terrified'' of him.
* {{Sequelitis}}: Maybe Diane Thomas would have been able to make a worthy sequel, but after her death we got a horrible mess that was obviously the result of mass studio interference. Rather than make a third film, the cast went and made ''Film/TheWarOfTheRoses''.
