* BreakTheHaughty: To show the SmallNameBigEgo of the fire department he's not as cool as he thinks he is, Caleb has a hot sauce drinking contest with him.[[spoiler:Caleb replaced the hot sauce in his with tomato juice.]]

* ComputerEqualsMonitor: Looks to be the case when Caleb goes after the monitor with a baseball bat in order to combat his internet pornography addiction. He quickly follows it up with smashing up the tower as well (well, the case at least. The one shot we get of the computer in the trash looks like most of the hardware is still intact).

* RunningGag: Caleb giving up something, then taking it out into the yard to whale on it with a baseball bat, then getting noticed by his elderly neighbors. He gives a cheerful greeting, and the neighbor gives a suspicious "Caleb."

* ViewersAreMorons: When we first see Dr. Keller. It's blatant that Catherine and Keller are attracted to each other. Nevertheless, two seconds later, the nurses talk about how they are attracted to each other.

* TheUnfairSex: While Caleb was kind of a Jerkass and had problems, both personal and in the marriage, he's shown as the ''only'' one who had to fight for the marriage. It didn't show Catherine responsible or commissioned for such things, despite that clearly she was equally wrong in many of her arguments and, if anything, slowly changing for the ''worse''. For example, Caleb's watching internet porn is treated as a huge problem worthy of a cold dismissal of all his efforts to save and improve their marriage all the way up until he takes out his entire life savings to get her mother a wheelchair, but Catherine's overt dalliance in flirting with a co-worker (not to mention getting closer to said co-worker when she automatically assumes that he, and not ''her own damn husband who's been kissing her ass for over 40 days straight'', was the one who made that $24K payment) warrants no such consternation.

* BrokenAesop: "Do good for other people, even when they're in the wrong, and hope your actions inspire them" is not a terribly inconsistent message, especially within a specifically Christian ethos, but the message seems to only apply one way.

** Catharine didn't have to fight for the marriage. Her actions were completely reasonable throughout the film, considering what Caleb had put her through.
