The copious number of {{Railing Kill}}s nearly becomes a DrinkingGame (and inspires Tom to fill the 'Satellite of Love' with pits and railings), and they also make up numerous fake bodybuilder names for the muscular hero Dave Ryder including Slab Bulkhead, Fridge Largemeat, Bolt van der Huge, Big [=McLargeHuge=], Blast Hardcheese, Smoke Manmuscle, Punch Rockgroin, Roll Fizzlebeef, and [[OddNameOut Bob Johnson]]. Kalgan's frequent [[EvilLaugh maniacal laughter]] is also a source of entertainment, as is the beefy protagonist's oddly girlish battle shouts. Kalgan's red-armored bodyguard ("Lobster Boy") and the death and miraculous "resurrection" of Lt. Lemont round out the riff targets. Oddly enough, the only thing Mike and the Bots ''don't'' [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] is the fact that every single "space" shot in the film is simply a clip from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}''. (Evidently because they didn't know this was the case at the time of filming.) They were also unaware that the film was made in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica during UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra; at one point, Mike jokes that it looks like [[OhCanada a Canadian production]].
