Added DiffLines:

*IronButtMonkey: Rod survives numerous falls and injuries that would outright kill or permanently cripple most people, and his [[TheDeterminator tenacity is second to none]], but virtually '''nothing''' goes right for him for a majority of the film.

* PrecisionFStrike: It wouldn't be LonelyIsland without at least one f-bomb. Although in this case, it's not said by one of the dudes, but by a woman who tells Rod, "get the fuck off my porch".

* YouSayTomato: Rod tells his crew that his safety word is "hwisky". His half-brother wants to know why he's pronouncing "whiskey" so weirdly, which leads to Rod pronouncing a string of words starting with 'wh' (and one that just starts with 'w') in the same way until his stepbrother gives up. According to WordOfGod, this was inspired by a skit on Music/GangStarr's album ''Moment of Truth''.

* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: The reason why Rod wants to give Frank a new heart, so he can rip it out of him, yes he says this, ''a lot''.
* PrecisionFStrike: Wouldn't be Lonely Island without at least one f-bomb. Though in this case, it's not said by one of the dudes, but by a woman who tells Rod, "get the fuck off my porch".
* RecycledPremise: This movie and ''Film/DirtyWork'' share the same central plot: An unsuccessful loser has to raise $50,000 for his cranky ex-boxer father to have a heart transplant.

* TwoDecadesBehind: This movie has such a 1980s ''feel'' to it that many people believe it to be set in that decade, despite Kevin for example carrying around a digital camera and [[spoiler:Uploading Rod's stunts online.]]
