* BlandNameProduct: Due to the film's low budget, the word "Buffalo" is used in instances where you would expect to see the Buffalo Bills' logo, for which the NFL and the team might reasonably have been able to charge for.

''Buffalo '66'' is a 1998 indie movie starring [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh lizard man]] Vincent Gallo, who also co-wrote, directed and composed the movie, and Creator/ChristinaRicci. Billy Brown has just been released from prison and the first thing he plans to do is introduce his wife to his parents. The problem with that plan is he doesn't have a wife, so he kidnaps a ballerina named Layla (Ricci). After a brief struggle and a very awkward dinner, Layla decides to stay with him for a night of bowling and "spanning time". She soon learns that Billy plans on getting even with the football player who was indirectly responsible for his imprisonment. What follows is a dark comedy about depression, revenge, and finding love.

* BulletTime: A similar effect to ''Film/TheMatrix'', which it preceded. The violent climax is shown in a series of still images, which the camera pans around as if still hand-held.

* BlatantLies: Billy is constantly telling obvious lies, such as that he works for the CIA, drives luxury cars, has had lots of girlfriends and knows martial arts. In reality, he's an unemployed and dateless loser who has very low self-esteem and is always trying to impress people. No one even bothers to contradict him.
