1* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The title track to the movie; play that song on your first day of classes, and it's gonna be a good semester. "Dead Man's Party" by Music/OingoBoingo also qualifies.* DirectorDisplacement: Creator/HaroldRamis was a co-writer and producer on the film.* HilariousInHindsight: A guy in his upper 60s going to college? That's nothing; the 2015 documentary ''Clarence'' featured a guy in his mid ''80s'' going to college for the first time.* NarmCharm: The guy pulling off the Triple Lindy dive is so obviously ''not'' Rodney, that it's actually kind of funny.* RetroactiveRecognition: [[Creator/RobertPicardo The guy who Thorton catches his wife with]] [[Series/StarTrekVoyager should look familiar to Star Trek fans.]]** As will [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Valerie Desmond]].** Keith Gordon stopped acting not long after this film and started directing TV, including ''Series/WildPalms'' and ''Series/{{Dexter}}''. Most folks remember him as an actor as the lead of ''Film/{{Christine}}''.** And then there's that [[Creator/RobertDowneyJr funny friend of Jason's]]...* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: At first glance, the film might look like a funny family comedy about an old man (played by Rodney Dangerfield) who goes back to college. It isn't rated PG-13 for nothing.----
