* WholePlotReference: This film surprisingly has a lot in common with the SylvesterStallone film ''Film/OverTheTop''. Examples include: main character entering a tournament for an obscure sport (dodgeball in this, arm wrestling in ''Over The Top'') in Las Vegas, the grand prize being $50,000, the main character trying to win back an item (the gym in this, the custody of the main character's son in ''Over The Top''), a scene where the hero and villain meet in a hotel room where the villain tries to get the hero to quit and a scene where the hero ponders on if to quit or keep going. Though it's never been mentioned by the director, you have to think that there was some inspiration.

* DisproportionateRetribution: White wants to tear down Average's Joes because Peter slept with three of his female trainers (in one night) and sent a ''male'' stripper-gram to his birthday. That's on one level. When White details his ultimate plan to Peter, he adds that he would prefer that the Average Joe's crew was in the building when the demolition took place.
