* PragmaticVillainy: Sonny exhibits this a number of times, and is frustrated that no one else seems to catch on to the importance of it. One example is that Sonny was the only one who was willing to do business with the Black Gangs, while the more racist mobsters want nothing to do with them.

Most of his hatred for C's friends stems from the fact that they just cause violence and trouble for the hell of it.

* {{Irony}}: Lorenzo is wary of Calogero's relationship with Sonny, convinced it will lead to his son's death. [[spoiler:It actually winds up ''saving'' Calogero's life as Sonny stops him from going along with his friends to attack the black neighborhood, which led to their deaths.]]

* GenreSavvy: The biker gang leader, after telling Sonny to piss off, notices Sonny locking the door: while the other bikers are laughing about it, there's obvious concern on his face. Something about this is not right. He's right -- see OhCrap below.

* CoversAlwaysLie[=/=]NeverTrustATrailer: Both the VHS/DVD cover and the trailer overplay the Sonny/Lorenzo conflict, and make it seem like the entire film is a face to face confrontation between the two. They share two scenes, and one of those lasts about 30 seconds. Calogero also notes that his father and Sonny never spoke once during the TimeSkip.
** Thematically though it is the conflict. They just never square off or confront each other.

Both the VHS/DVD cover and the trailer overplay the Sonny/Lorenzo conflict, and make it seem like the entire film focuses on the two trying to influence Calogero, leading up to a big confrontation. The focus is a face to face confrontation actually on Calogero growing up and having choose between the two. They advice that the two of them give him, with no face off occurring whatsoever. In fact, Lorenzo and Sonny only share two scenes, and one of those lasts about 30 seconds. Calogero also notes that his father and Sonny never spoke once during the TimeSkip.
