- Anvilicious: The movie is a very unsubtle morality play depicting a very trippy version of the Book of Revelations.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Mr. Boogalow hmm - that name will come up again (spelled differently) in another (comparatively) more realistic music-based Cannon Group movie.
- Inferred Holocaust: All the people who've managed to resist Boogalow's control are raptured away to a new world, leaving no-one left on Earth to oppose him and he still is the dictator of a fascist state. Boogalow is less than pleased, however.
- Retroactive Recognition:
- Miriam Margolyes has a brief role as Alphie's landlady. She was somewhat well-known in the UK prior to appearing in the film, but would go on to achieve much greater fame on both sides of the Atlantic in the subsequent decades.
- This was probably the highest-profile screen role that Allan Love ever had... and he's still probably best known for his later appearance on the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares.
- It was the film debut of Finola Hughes, a British actress who would go on to do the Saturday Night Fever sequel Staying Alive, star in the soap opera General Hospital, and play the mother of the protagonists in Charmed.
- This is the only film credit of Nigel Lythgoe. He is more famous for being a judge and executive producer of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol. He considers it an Old Shame, probably due to the fact it was shot in a WW2 gas factory and most of the dancers were on drugs.
- So Bad, It's Good: Between the utterly insane plot and the actually quite decent music featured in the film, it can actually prove very entertaining if watched with the right mindset.
