  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The opening (which was added strictly for the nudity and with no narrative connection to the rest of the film), along with the whole "flag on the moon" thing.note

  • Memetic Mutation: "Flag on the Moon. How did it get there?"
  • Narm:
  • Padding: Dear god yes! This film just drags on and on with many scenes that often serve little-to-no purpose whatsoever. As Servo puts it:

  • Retroactive Recognition: The passer-by who finds Javorski's first victim and reports it to the police later had the more memorable (if not really that much more substantial) role of Cherokee Jack in Red Zone Cuba.
  • So Bad, It's Good: It's Coleman Francis' best. As in the only one that's watchable without riffing.
  • Special Effect Failure:
    Mike: (imitating the narrator) "Coleman Francis solves the problem of sound sync."
