** WrongWire: Subverted; hitting the wrong wire does not have any ill effects beyond an animated explosion.


** EverythingsBetterWithCows: One of the targets that sometimes shows up on the VideoMode is a cow, and shooting it yields a million points.
** TakeThat: This is seen by some as a TakeThat against Creator/WilliamsElectronics and their various [[EverythingsBetterWithCows hidden cows.]]

** The movie scenes themselves are a slight example. When eyes flash, the trigger can be pulled for an extra million points.
** Similarly, after the Uzi is loaded, the most points are earned by starting to fire when the eyes flash on the DMD.

The game is somewhat misnamed, as it actually incorporates scenes and sound clips from the first three films. Hit the three LW saucers to complete various stunts like the High Fall, Joshua's helicopter, and Murtaugh's exploding toilet, then cap them off with the Super Stunt Spectacular. Alternately, shoot the outer loop to load bullets into the Uzi, then use it to shoot the villains on the display for various bonuses. Cut the correct wire to disarm the bomb, shoot the practice targets for Leo Getz, then loop the right orbit in the Getaway while Crazy Riggs racks up the score to the accompaniment of TheThreeStooges. For even faster scoring, start the Lotsaballs multiball mode, then try to score the Speed, Double, and Quadruple Jackpots.
