These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Harsher in Hindsight: As mentioned above, the film's plot rather eerily foreshadowed the Three Mile Island incident.
Misaimed Fandom: Halfway through the film, Jack Lemmon's makes an impassioned speech about how the system (referring to the nuclear safety system) works and the problem is, in fact, corporate cost cutting. Fast forward 30 years, the anti-nuclear movement is going strong, new nuclear power plants are an extreme rarity and corporations are under fewer regulations than ever.
