* BlackComedyAnimalCruelty: Ken repeatedly tries to kill the old woman who is going to testify against George but accidentally kills her dogs instead. This is made funnier by the fact that Ken loves animals and is horrified whenever he accidentally kills one of the dogs.

* FawltyTowersPlot: The movie (starring [[JohnCleese Basil Fawlty,]] appropriately enough) is built around convoluted lies. Archie trying to recover a locket and robbing his own house is one of the funniest.

* GilliganCut: "Alright, alright, I apologize."



-->'''Wanda:''' "Now let me correct you on a couple of things, okay? Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not 'Every man for himself.' And UsefulNotes/TheLondonUnderground is not a political movement! Those are all mistakes, Otto! I looked them up."

* TakeThat: The epilogue has one against apartheid South Africa, saying Otto immigrated there to become the Minister of Justice. This is all the more ironic as Kevin Kline played the South African dissident Donald Woods a year earlier in ''Film/CryFreedom''.
