In one scene, George and Bob discuss TV lineups. One of the shows mentioned is "Volcano Worshippers Hour." In high school, "Weird" Al started a "Volcano Worshippers" club just to get in the yearbook.
Continuity: Before the shot in which Kuni changes the board to read $75,000, you can see the board changing to read $75,000 over the crowd in the preceding shot.
"Broads don't belong in broadcasting"? Is that the kind of professional courtesy you teach your news department?
Why, that's a terrible thing. I don't know how many time I've told those boys, never call chicks broads.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life. But it's not a
normal laugh. It's a laugh of confusion!
"What the f*ck was that!?" I keep asking myself. "Did that just
happen?" Is my favorite. "What does that mean?" Is another.
The comedy in this is ridiculous to the point where you wonder how
anyone could have made something so ridiculous. The plot was very
simple, but it really did facilitate the tangent humor of Weird Al.
Tangent humour is something used a lot by amateur, unorganized film
makers. I think one of the reasons I enjoy this movie so much is that
it reminds me of my high school film class.
