* BavarianFireDrill: Bowfinger gets ''Chubby Rain'' greenlit by acting like he's already assembling the cast and crew.

Cash, every movie costs $2,184". [[spoiler:Turns out no it doesn't, Bowfinger goes broke during production, so he has to steal Daisy's credit card to finance the rest of the film.]]

* StylisticSuck: WordOfGod, this is why ''Chubby Rain'' was a hit. Judging from the footage we seen, it's believable.

* 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. [[spoiler: In the finale they put the pieces together and stage a rescue from the film crew GasLighting him.]]
