  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "I'm Beta, you're VHS" got an extra layer of humor when the character who says it dies just a few minutes later, much like how Betamax died for consumer use shortly after this film came out.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The film is so steeped in late 80s gym culture that it could not have been made at any other time. The gym clothes, the aerobics routines, gyms as the hip hangout and pickup place, the health bar serving veggie shakes and carob coffee, etc. And then there's the computer technology and hairstyles. And capping it off, a character, who is implied to be gay, tells a woman who is hitting on him that they are incompatible by saying "You're VHS and I'm Beta".
