YMMV / The Apple

  • Anvilicious: The movie is a very unsubtle morality play depicting a very trippy version of the Book of Revelations.
  • Inferred Holocaust: All the people who've managed to resist Boogalow's control are raptured away to a new world, leaving no-one left on Earth to oppose him and he still is the dictator of a fascist state.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Miriam Margolyes has a brief role as Alphie's landlady. She was somewhat well-known in the UK prior to appearing in the film, but would go on to achieve much greater fame on both sides of the Atlantic in the subsequent decades.
    • This was probably the highest-profile screen role that Allan Love ever had... and he's still probably best known for his later appearance on the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares.
    • It was the film debut of Finola Hughes, a British actress who would go on to do Staying Alive.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Between the utterly insane plot and the actually quite decent music featured in the film, it can actually prove very entertaining if watched with the right mindset.
