* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Not that he was all that pretty to begin with, but he looks pretty good at the end of the fight, black eye notwithstanding, and then it heals up perfectly a short time later.



* TheCastShowOff: Malia, one of Scott's students, sings with the school Orchestra just before his [[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC]] fight... which makes sense, as she is played by singer/songwriter [[Series/{{Glee}} Charice.]]



* RealityIsUnrealistic: Upon release, the film was criticized for the ending of Scott's UFC fight, where [[spoiler: he fights his way out of an armbar by hoisting his opponent and slamming him into the ground, winning by knockout.]] As [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OWA0KrmzKU this video]] clearly demonstrates, not only is slamming/power-bombing an opponent a valid defense against a variety of submission holds, but it is perfectly capable of knocking you ''out cold''. As Joe Rogan points out in his commentary, getting slammed on your head and shoulders ''hurts''. He likens it to a linebacker tackling a quarterback... but without a helmet for protection.

* VengefulVendingMachine: Scott tries to buy a snack from a vending machine, but it gets stuck. He rams the vending machine causing several snacks to fall out. A student sees him do this and he tosses him one of the extra snacks telling him to keep quiet.

* TheyStoleOurAct: Voss faces this dilemma when one of his opponents comes in to his entrance music (''Boom'' by P.O.D.). The replacement song Marty comes up with is ''Holly Holy'' by Neil Diamond.

* CheckovsGun: Scott's brother is shown to hate his job as a painter, and to be a skilled, dedicated cook. [[spoiler: This gives Scott a way to help Malia's father later, when his chef quits, thus making it possible for Malia to remain in the school's music club.]]
