* BlackComedyRape: When the two try to make out with the two female scientists in their sleep without their consent before getting thrown out. This sequence is PlayedForLaughs.

Briefly, a group of people are sealed into a Bio-Dome which is ''supposed'' to be a miniature self-sufficient ecology, sealed off from the outside world. One of these people is played by Creator/PaulyShore. HilarityEnsues. Supposedly. In theory.

* BlackComedyRape: Probably among the most unfunny versions seen in media.



* GreenAesop: A relatively subtle and intelligent one, and arguably the only subtle thing in the entire film.

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: A whole chunk of the film is centered on our two [[DesignatedHero "heroes"]] participating in insanely unfunny stuff that contributes absolutely nothing to the plot.



* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Eventually the lead scientist ''does'' try to kill them... Leaving the audience confused why this is supposed to be a ''[[RootingForTheEmpire bad]]'' thing.

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: In one flashback, Doyle's mom is seen drowning Bud to teach them how to hold their breath for several minutes at a time. [[Childhood Brain damage Probably explains why they act like they're brain damaged]].

* ButNotTooBi: Bud and Doyle are supposedly bisexual, even though they never hit on any male character save for a brief moment [[FanDisservice with each other]]. Which would be assuming that they weren't going for cheap laughs.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: They break into the bio-dome, mess about with the scientist attempts at research, destroy the bio-dome itself and with it any attempt at gaining scientific insight by letting others inside after being told they couldn't leave for just such a reason, the sexual abuse of the two female scientists.....and we're supposed to root for them because they feel bad about it.

* TotallyRadical: The main characters, again. After all, this ''is'' set in TheNineties.
** Even for the 90's, it was way over the top and unbelievable.

In more detail: Bud Macintosh (Shore) and Doyle Johnson (StephenBaldwin) are your average [[TheSlacker slackers]], neither particularly bright, nor particularly attractive. Somehow they managed to get hot girlfriends, Monique and Jen (played respectively by JoeyLaurenAdams and TeresaHill). The two girls are very interested in environmental efforts and quite fed-up with the two slackers' indifference towards it.
