* JumpScare: Performed with the end credits, of all things. The words "The End" pop up so randomly and so loudly it's liable to catch you off guard.

** But it ''is'' the fricking cherry!



* IdiotBall: Way to show up on television while you're in the Witness Relocation Program, Mr. Winslow. Particularly in a news report apparently being broadcast nationwide.

Way to show up on television while you're in the Witness Relocation Program, Mr. Winslow. Particularly in a news report apparently being broadcast nationwide.



* PacManFever: Averted; Kathy's little brother is occasionally seen playing various NES games, none of which involve wild controller mashing or Atari sound effects. In fact, it sounds at one point like he's actually playing ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' for a good couple minutes straight.



* WitnessProtection: Kathy's family is under this, though her parents never bothered to tell her.
** Notably, the film neglects to include the ''protection'' part of the program, as apparently the same felons that are chasing Kathy's family are unimpeded in their ability to pursue them. The family would actually be under the protection of federal marshals, so the father's insistence there's nothing he can do but "be careful" is rather bizarre.
* WorstNewsJudgementEver: As the {{Podcast/Rifftrax}} of the movie points out, what exactly is newsworthy about a smart girl doing well in school? Obviously, it was contrived as a PlotDevice to get the dad on the television so the bad guys would see him, but the same could be accomplished more plausibly by having him unknowingly filmed in a crowd at some event that's actually newsworthy.
** It could be justified since it's a small town and local television stations do cover things that would otherwise be considered unnewsworthy in larger stations, but if that's the case, how did TheMafia know to watch a regional TV show?

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Ice at one point has the price tag still on his hat. This was actually popular in hip-hop circles in the early 90s. It was done to make sure everyone knew [[SkewedPriorities how expensive your designer name-brand clothing was]].

* BlackBestFriend: Johnny has ''three!''



* CloudCuckooLand: Roscoe and Mae's house is a very, very surreal piece of architecture.



* TheNineties: Depressingly so.

to:

* TheNineties: Depressingly so.The fashion and sounds are very, very early 90s, in the brief window of time where hip-hop actually looked like this (remember, other big rappers around this time were Music/MCHammer and Kid 'N Play). The gangsta movement would make this aesthetic a distant memory (not that this movie needed the help).

* SadTimesMontage: Johnny has one of these [[SoundtrackDissonance set to early 90s dance-pop.]]

* SadTimesMontage: After Kathy tells him she can't see him anymore, Johnny has one of these these... set to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nS5GtciRJVU "Crazy"]] by Daisy Dee. You don't often see someone invoking this trope to [[SoundtrackDissonance set to early 90s dance-pop.hip-house.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SloMoBigAir: Johnny does this with his CoolBike, over a fence, when he first sees Kathy. Which is pretty amazing, considering there was no ramp in sight.

* TheNicknamer: Upon finding out that his LoveInterest is named Kathy, Johnny immediately decides to call her "Kat." She appears to be totally indifferent to the name, never even commenting on it.

* BehindTheBlack: When Kathy is walking home from the Sugar Shack (in the middle of the street, for some reason), the bad guys spot her and try to run her over. Ice somehow manages to ride up next to her on a loud sporting motorcycle without anyone hearing or noticing him before he appears on camera.
