* AdamWesting: The ''Guardian'''s review of the film described it as starring "Jack Nicholson playing a Jack Nicholson who's not as good a Jack Nicholson as the Jack Nicholson he played in ''Film/AboutSchmidt'' or ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets'', but a better Jack Nicholson than the Jack Nicholson he played in ''Somethings Gotta Give''.
* AffectionateParody: Of Sandler's past roles as a guy with anger problems. Here, he can't express anger.

* ForTheEvulz: Subverted. In between we're given the impression of Buddy as a rather nutty {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (which he is by the way) who appears to be torturing Dave just for the fun of his twisted little games, [[spoiler:though in end, it turns out that Buddy's ZanyScheme really was just to help Dave overcome his implosive anger problems to get him to stand up for himself.]]

* SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp: As part of his "therapy," Buddy takes Dave to confront the bully who used to torment him in school. Dave is less than convinced, especially when it turns out that the bully is living in a Buddhist retreat and has renounced all violence. The bully is very apologetic about his behavior...''except'' for when he pulled down Dave's pants in front of his childhood crush. In fact, he mocks Dave even further. They end up wrestling on the monastery grass.
