- Anvilicious: This film was made during the Depression, and emphasizes the plight of the workers who would be out of jobs if Colossal Studios shut down.
- Narm: In-universe, the hilariously bad movie Sex and Satan. "Congo! He's DEAD!"
- Values Dissonance: Part of Atterbury and Quintain's brilliant plan to save Colossal Studios involves destroying Thelma Cherie's career so that she can never work in the industry again by involving her in a scandal. Said scandal amounts to getting her seen in public with Atterbury, who is head of the studio, while blackout drunk. For some reason this ruins her career, but he gets off scot-free.
YMMV / Stand-In
