- Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Vincent Kok, who portrays the captain of Team Tofu in the preliminaries, has exclaimed "It's just an optical illusion! It doesn't scare me!" The same line is repeated word for word in Kok's previous appearance as Bull Tong from God of Cookery, another Stephen Chow film.
- Deleted Scene: The Miramax American release deleted about 30 minutes worth of scenes from the original theatrical release, making the movie more confusing as a result. Fortunately, the DVD offers the option to see either the edited American dub or the original with English subtitles.
- Throw It In!: Several cases of Corpsing during the song-and-dance in the bar, and one of the guys beating them up for it, are retained in the original theatrical release.
