Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Dr. Jones's lecture on global warming is set to rousing, majestic music that lends total authority to his words.
** The ending scene, which consists solely of the main characters standing around watching the birds fly away, is set to an epic, heroic fanfare.

* TakeThat: Dr. Jones' comment about "playing cowboy with nature" seems like a slap at [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush George W. Bush,]] who was in office when the film was made and wasn't known for being environmentally-friendly.

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: Exploding birds aside, the film actually contains quite a bit of information about real-life effects of global warming (melting polar ice, changing ocean temperatures, invasive species, etc.)

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: In James Nguyen's director commentary, he draws attention to several examples. For instance, the man who steals Rod's gas is wearing a cowboy hat, as a reference to Dr. Jones' warning about "playing cowboy with nature."

Added DiffLines:

* CoolOldGuy: Dr. Jones, who doesn't let the Birdemic distract him from his job and clearly doesn't fear that the birds might attack him. He still keeps a gun on him, just in case.

*** The male lead is named in honor of Rod Taylor, the actor who played the romantic lead in ''TheBirds''. Nathalie's name could also be a reference to the actress who played the female lead of that movie - Nathalie "Tippi" Hedren.

* BrokenAesop: The kids are supposed to look bratty for wanting a happy meal, rather than the food Rod had cooked, but likely would have gotten poisoned from the unprepared fish Rod had cooked. Considering it consisted of unprepared fish cooked with seaweed Nathalie randomly found on the beach and according to Birdemic 2 it '''killed''' Susan (the little girl), finding a [=McDonald=]'s not being attacked by gif birds would be the better solution.
