The pictures displayed in the Loser's Bar include: the Hindenburg, the R.M.S. Lusitania sinking, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the Ford Edsel, the DeLorean DMC-12, the Hubble Space Telescope (considered a failure at the time), Neville Chamberlain, and Michael Dukakis.
"Weird Al" Yankovic had a brief role as a thug who holds the police at the precinct at gunpoint. In the scene, he says, "Okay, Pigs, say your prayers!" followed by an oblivious Frank slamming the door open and knocking Yankovic's character to the floor. Yankovic said it took more than twenty takes to get the scene done, and that after about sixteen takes, his leg had turned "a nice shade of purple." The stunt coordinator asked Yankovic at that point if he wanted to wear some padding. Yankovic also recalled that O.J. Simpson felt sorry for him.
Lloyd Bochner spoofed his own performance from To Serve Man (1962). In a panicked crowd scene late in the film, Bochner can be seen carrying a large book with "To Serve Man" on the cover, and shouting to passersby, "It's a cookbook! It's a cookbook!" In the episode seemingly benevolent aliens come to earth with the goal of serving man. Bochner's character reveals that their bible of sorts turns out to be cookbook, with man to be served as a meal.
The opening credits sequence ends with Zsa Zsa Gabor slapping the police car. This spoofs a 1989 incident in which Gabor was arrested for slapping a police officer and driving with an expired license.
'Weird Al' Yankovic appears in all three movies in the trilogy but this is the only one where he doesn't appear as himself.
When the police have the house surrounded and start shooting, the Colonial-era guy shooting the flintlock is co-writer and director David Zucker.
