However (and I’m not sure why there isn’t a separate question listed for this), there are pretty disgusting displays of racism. Early on during their trip they go through an inner city somewhere and make comments about where they are and the people who are around. Black men are portrayed as hustlers and thieves.

After they get to Wally World — the Black security guard is literally treated like a dog. There is another hard to watch scene with this security guard after the owner of WW arrives.
The WW guy, upon arrival accuses “Arabs” of possibly terrorizing them.
I would have to comb through the movie to mark down other things. This isn’t an exhaustive list.

Lasky: That's not a real gun, is it Clark?
Clark: Are you kidding? This is a Magnum P.I.

Lasky: It's a BB gun!
Clark: Don't tempt me. I could poke an eye out with this thing.
Lasky: You couldn't even break the skin with that thing.
