  • Audience-Alienating Premise: It's hard to explain the movie's premise in a way that makes sense.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: When the Holnists almost stone a man to death for not showing the Sound of Music.
    • Bizarrely, this is meant to have a point. The Holnists are almost all conscripts and thus are not the psychopaths that you might initially think.
    • Also can be viewed as a Mythology Gag (the Augments in the novel) or a Take That. The film shown: Universal Soldier.
  • Critical Backlash: Upon release, it was shot dead in the water. Nowadays, it's regarded that despite the abusive length and pacing, it's not that bad.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The whole movie nowadays plays like something of a mix between Dances with Wolves and Fallout.
    • A survivor of the apocolypse working to rebuild society through the mail system? Hmm...
  • Narm: Along with Glurge, in quite a few places throughout the movie, particularly the the statue at the end and when Ford Lincoln Mercury meets the soldier from The NCR the Republic of California
    • The scene where Shakespeare imagines owning a television set that functions.
    • The scene where he performs Shakespeare horribly with his Donkey.

    • Shakespeare's attempts to make up a story even though he's a horrible liar.
    • Roger Ebert said the crowning moment of sap was when the Postman rides out to pick a letter from a boy's hands.
      • Hell, just the whole damn movie.
