The sketch is held on the planet Coruscant, which is featured in the prequels and later edited into Return of the Jedi. The "aluminum falcon" the Emperor asks about is a misinterpretation of Han Solo's ship, the Millenium Falcon.

    • Chutes and Ladders The title for the fake movie trailer, Chutes and Ladders, is based on the Milton Bradley/Hasbro board game.

Also being parodied in the segment of the trailer with Ben Stiller is Dodgeball, Meet the Parents, There's Something About Mary, and Along Came Polly.
