Added DiffLines:
* ActionGirl: Daisy's character does most of the fighting in the movie while Kit's character just looks scared and confused. And as far as we can tell, [[HypercompetentSidekick she's the one doing all the real work in staving off the alien invasion]].

Erroneous Justifying Edit. 1456 3 = 485.55555555555555555
** 1458 is divisible by 3, and the result is 486, which is what Kit says. Eddie Murphy might have swapped in the 6.

* MovieMakingMess: So much - the equipment is "borrowed" from unknowing studios, the crew was taken at the Californian border with Mexico... ArtisticLicenseFilmProduction doesn't even start to cover it.

Added DiffLines:
* FakeShemp: Jiff is hired for this purpose once Kit hides into [=MindHead=]. [[invoked]]

* ChurchOfHappyology: "Welcome to [=MindHead=]! Welcome to [=MindHead=]! Welcome to [=MindHead=]!" Played with, as whatever their methods, [=MindHead's=] agents do seem genuinely concerned about Kit, and they're the only ones able to rein in Kit's raving eccentricities. If not for them, he'd likely be in a mental institution with all the paranoia he's coping with.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: [[CaptainObvious Obviously]], the term "Bowfinger" being given to the two-fingered version of the finger. ** Possibly from the poster, SteveMartin has his other three fingers bent slightly back, thus can be seen as subtly flipping off the audience.

creator cameo can't be accurate. if it's the scene in the diner yelling at the embroidering mexicans then he's just doing it for kit's benefit, not to use in the film.
