-Overly rapid firing machine guns. These things were huge in '90's movies.
-Jean Claude somehow playing goalie in a Stanley Cup game
It is one of my All-Time favorites.
One of my all-time favorites as well -- I'll add the following two elements to your list as well:
- Actual inclusion of Mike Lange, voice of the Pittsburgh Penguins and one of the best announcers in all of sports.
- Willingness to try and base a plot around someone taking the Vice President hostage -- which seems to be pretty pointless, since the actual President is still around and can just appoint another one with little or no disruption to the functioning of government.
