* EverythingIsBigInTexas: Between the Tower Life Building, River Walk, the Sunken Gardens in Brackenridge Park, and [[RememberTheAlamo the Alamo]], the movie gets a lot of mileage out of using early-1980s [[OtherCitiesInTexas San Antonio]] as a setting.

* FreudianTrio: Haverman, Alvarez, and Rice fall under this trope as the Id, Ego, and Superego, respectively, in terms of their impulsive behavior, [[RefugeInAudacity as they select some very public San Antonio landmarks in which they conduct their dirty spy business]]. Haverman is the most reckless, Alvarez falls somewhere in between him and Rice, who is the most discreet (albeit not by much.) [[spoiler: Not surprisingly, this is precisely the order in which they are killed. Haverman is killed in a car wreck when he carelessly drives the van into a jewelry store [[HoistByHisOwnPetard after intending to run down and kill Davey]]; Alvarez is accidentally killed by Rice during the aforementioned "[[DeadlyDodging Crossfire]] [[BatmanGambit Gambit]]" when Rice tries to shoot Davey instead; and finally, after picking up the gun from Alvarez's corpse, Davey kills the remaining spy out of rage when backed into a wall when he thinks said remaining spy has killed Jack Flack]].

* EvenEvilHasStandards: George and Eunice [=MacCready=] may not make an honest living, but they become very indignant with Rice, Alvarez, and Haverman for their failure to be discreet and maintain a low profile, especially when the latter three try to publicly murder Davey (see [[WouldHurtAChild Would Hurt A Child]] below). Eunice even says something to this effect as she and George are in the car while discussing their plans to flee the country, and he agrees.

Of course, this changes later when Davey has the upper hand against them, and they retaliate by kidnapping him at gunpoint.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: You'd expect that a PG spy caper starring two children keeping a video game away from villains would be a lot more kid-friendly, but this film features quite a bit of murder. The kid hero is even stuffed into a car trunk with a corpse. Twice.
