Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailer portrayed the film as some sort of action-horror title with a lot of focus on scary parts. Cue the actual movie being a horror-comedy.

* TeenPregnancy: Creator/KariWuhrer was 35 at the time of filming, but her character, Sheriff Samantha Parker, doesn't really look the part. It gets some explanation when her teenage daughter Ashley (played by then-18-years-old Scarlett Johansson) reveals during an argument between them that Sam got pregnant with her at age 16.

* ParentalNeglect: Bret obviously suffers from Wade's lack of interest in his son's life. When he tries to inform him that he's going out for the evening, not even quipping loudly that he might partake in an orgy and steal some cars elicits a noteworthy reaction from his father (who's arguing with his investors on the phone the whole time).

* HeelFaceTurn: Bret starts off as a [[AllMenArePerverts sex-obsessed]] JerkAss, but ends up as a much nicer guy and even gets back together with his girlfriend. He plays SupportStaff to the Hero.
** Perhaps the taser [[GroinAttack to the balls]] acted as electroshock therapy.
