- Awesome Music:
- "Move 'Em Out!", the '70s funk song heard in the club.
- The Asian-flavored score during the chase/warehouse scene at the end. It was so catchy that Family Guy used it decades later in the episode "Breaking Out is Hard to Do".
- Franchise Original Sin: It's considered the last good movie of the franchise, but several of the problems of the next sequels already exist here: questionable running jokes, offensive racial stereotypes, and exaggerated plots. There is only one reason why this movie is good: the brilliant Peter Sellers was still alive.
- We're Still Relevant, Dammit!: The fact that it was now the late 1970s rather than the early 1960s was played up quite a bit. For the opening titles, they even had a disco version of the classic theme. It could have been Totally Radical, but Henry Mancini knocked it out of the park.
