Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Tim Messenger misspells Angel's name as Angle in the issue of the Sandford Citizen when Angel appears at the school. This leads to the MaliciousMisnaming example from the other officers a few scenes later. Skinner even later tells Tim to spell Angel's name correctly the next time he wants to mention him in the paper.


Added DiffLines:

* AllForNothing: [[spoiler:Irene Butterman's efforts to prepare Sandford for the Village of the Year competition twenty years before was ruined by gypsy travellers moving into Callahan Park, which led Irene to lose her mind and kill herself.]]
** [[spoiler: Implied to have been the case in the present, too, with the current Village of the Year competition. Angel even lampshades it, saying the people who were murdered died for no reason other than utter pettiness.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BigWhat: Angel when Frank tells him there's been reports of a fire in the station. It turns out to be the candle on Danny's birthday cake, which the other officers bring out to him.
* BigWordShout: Andy Cartwright causes a JumpScare for Angel at the church fete by yelling "SHARK!" in his ear as he watches Skinner.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Dr. Hatcher attempts to invoke this in the climax, saying that as the one who brought Danny into the world, he feels he should be the one to take him out of it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Danny's misuse of an air rifle at the church fete results in Dr. Hatcher being shot in the leg and taken away for treatment.


Added DiffLines:

* MaliciousMisnaming: The other officers in the Sandford Police Service (minus Danny) call Angel Angle after the misspelling of his name in the Sandford Citizen.
** The Andys to Angel a few times, calling him and Danny "Sergeant Knicker-less Asswipe and Constable Fanny Batterbomb" after the death of [[spoiler:George Merchant]], and one of them calls him "Nichol-arse" at the church fete.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:Annette Roper asks Danny, "No luck catching them killers, then?" when he and Angel go to her shop for Cornettos, giving Angel a EurekaMoment that indirectly leads to him uncovering the truth. On top of that, Annette Roper is one of the killers herself.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Martin Blower has one in his last moments of life as the black cloaked figure is about to strike him dead.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree: [[spoiler:When Danny and Angel go to Annette Roper's shop for Cornettos, she asks Danny, "No luck catching them killers, then?", to which Danny replies, "Um, it's just the one killer, actually." This echoes in Angel's head three times as he gets a EurekaMoment.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SunglassesAtNight: The Andys keep their shades on after the village fete, even though it's nighttime, and it's raining.

* WindowPain:
** Nicholas tosses his billy club through a glass pane door (to crack it), then leaps through it in order to chase a black-robed suspect.

* ItsPersonal: Two examples with Danny, a third with Andy Cartwright, all during the climax.
** [[spoiler:One of Amanda Paver's gunshots hits Angel in the shoulder. Danny sees this from his police car, and he angrily invokes a ToyotaTripwire moment by flinging open his car door and flipping her off her bike. Then he has a BigNo upon seeing Reverend Shooter shoot Angel, and shoots him before seeing that Angel is OK thanks to his stab vest.]]
** [[spoiler:The third example occurs when Angel, Danny and the rest of the Service (bar Frank) storm the supermarket. One of the butcher twins throws a knife, smashing a jar of bolognese. Andy Cartwright screams "ANDY!", thinking the other Andy has been hit in the face, and angrily opens fire on the twins, before Andy Wainwright shouts he's OK, and the red stuff on him is bolognese sauce.]]



** [[spoiler:Andy Cartwright yells "ANDY!" when the other Andy seems to have been shot in the face. Andy Wainwright shouts back, "It's all right, Andy! It's just bolognese!"]]

Added DiffLines:

** Angel's notebook. He points out to Danny that it has saved his skin more times than he can care to mention. [[spoiler:It later does exactly that when Danny stabs him, going hand-in-hand with the ChekhovsSkill involving a packet of ketchup hidden in the notebook.]]
** Mr Treacher's coat. [[spoiler:Angel points out early on to Danny that he may be using it to hide something. He is, namely a shotgun, which he uses in the climax.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Let's just say Danny was being completely honest about using his notebook. He uses it for flipbook animations.
** Reverend Shooter's lines of "Someone's in for a surprise at 3:00, ladies and gentlemen" at the village fete. [[spoiler:It foreshadows the death of Tim Messenger.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FireForgedFriends: Angel with the other cops after the climax. Throughout much of the movie, he's constantly butting heads with and exasperated by them, but at the end he's loosened up considerably, is willing to join in the jokes, and is shown having a laugh with them over paperwork.

It's also filled with HoYay: even its creators indulged in writing {{slashfic}} on Website/{{Twitter}}.
