- Fun with Subtitles: The French DVD release includes "Palombian" subtitles... that is, El Spanish "-o" applied to French.
- Hilarious Outtakes: As shown on the DVD bonus, Corpsing was a very common problem when shooting the movie.
- Let Us Never Speak of This Again: The chihuahua scene is this for Jamel in the DVD bonus.
- Playing Against Type: Lambert Wilson is mostly known for serious roles (like in the movie Des hommes et des dieux, or as the Merovingian in The Matrix Reloaded). As General Pochero, he gets to, dress in drag and sing a Céline Dion song along with Spontaneous Choreography. An interview shows he was delighted to be offered the role.
- Recursive Adaptation: This comic-book-inspired movie itself got a Comic-Book Adaptation in the Marsupilami series.
- Throw It In!: Pablito's Palombian insults ("hijo de speculos"; "fajitas de leche") are mostly improv from Jamel Debouzze.
