Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Complete Monster: Basically any inmate (other than Cameron Poe and Mike "Baby-O" O'Dell) who appears in the movie, but especially Billy Bedlam and Garland Greene before his Character Development.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Put the bunny back in the box!"
    • Why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?
    • Make a move and the bunny gets it!
    • The movie is rather memetic just for existing and being a really cheesy movie. And for, as mentioned, being in the meme factory that is Homestuck.
  • Rooting For The Cons: while the bad guys - Cyrus especially - are dangerous criminals, there's a moment or two where the audience can't help but cheer for the bad guys. Specifically when they set up a spirited (and humorous) defense of the airfield and when it turns out their financial backer Cindino was going to double-cross them.
    • It helps that even among the cons they despise the likes of rapist Johnny23, and fear the likes of Garland who by movie's end seems to have willingly given up the evil lifestyle.
  • So Bad It's Good
  • Vindicated by History: Or at least among a small circle. Several people only watched the film due to it being a fundamental part of the plot in Homestuck.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Again, more or less courtesy of its use in Homestuck.
