• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • Badass Decay: Inverted and played straight. Ned Beatty's character actually becomes the rock after being anally raped, while Jon Voight's character kills the redneck threatening them, and Burt Reynolds' character, after breaking his leg, instantly turns into a whiny little bitch.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The "Dueling Banjos" scene.
  • Complete Monster: The two mountain men.
  • Ear Worm: "Dueling Banjos" of course.
  • Everybody Remembers the Stripper: In a manner of speaking... There are only two things people remember about the movie at all: Banjos, and Man-rape.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Tons. Aside from the more obvious points, just the strong possibility of the protagonists being watched by the mountain men at any time.
  • Memetic Mutation
    • "You've got a real purdy mouth."
    • "Squeal like a piggy!"
    • Dueling Banjos.
  • Narm: John Voight's rope snapping and him falling while banjo music plays.
  • Never Live It Down: Poor, poor Bobby.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Imagine being out in the middle of the woods, as far from civilization as you could possibly get. Now imagine that someone could be watching your every move, from anywhere in the vast woods and mountains. And he thinks you're sexy. Feel like going camping?
  • Retroactive Recognition: Tropers have experienced this with Ronnie Cox.
    • This was also Ed O'Neill's acting debut (he plays one of the police officers at the end).
