- Crowning Music of Awesome: For such a bad movie, the music is surprisingly catchy.
- Harsher in Hindsight: Considering The Vietnam War expanded not long after this film, you have some pretty Unfortunate Implications going on here.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: John's father was in the military and then got himself elected to Congress...much like John's actor Bob Dornan.
- Narm: "Poopie suit."
"Now, don't ask me why they call it that."
- The major even looks embarrassed and reluctant to say "poopie suit".
- Padding: This movie has many, many shots of jets refueling and taking off from the runway.
