* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The entire premise of the film. Being romantically involved is ''not'' a prerequisite for two people being in a domestic partnership. If anything, the opposite is true: the agreement only recognizes that two unmarried people live together, and it's (in theory) designed for people who aren't romantic partners. The only reason that the arrangement was once common among LGBT couples is because same-sex marriage was ''illegal'' in most of the United States until 2015, so domestic partnerships were often the closest thing to marriage that they could get.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The entire premise of the film. Being romantically involved is ''not'' a prerequisite for two people being in a domestic partnership. If anything, the opposite is true: before same-sex marriage was legalized in the United States, most LGBT couples were forced to seek domestic partnership status because their romantic relationships ''didn't'' have legal recognition; since domestic partnership agreements simply recognize that two unmarried people live together, it was often the closest thing to marriage that they could get.

* ScaryBlackMan: [[spoiler:Duncan (Ving Rhames)]], one of the firefighters. Who turns out to [[MachoCamp be]] [[ArmoredClosetGay gay]] [[ManlyGay too.]] And the only reason he's "scary" is because he had to hide his sexuality, and would ''really'' become scary if he didn't come out.

** Implied with Larry's effeminate son. Or he could be just CampStraight.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Clinton Fitzer. Granted he was only doing his job investigating a possible fraud in Chuck and Larry's marriage, but does it justify being an unsympathetic asshole to them?

* [[invoked]] DudeNotFunny: At one point Chuck and Larry sleep on Larry's former wife's bed which he hasn't done since she died. Once under the covers, Chuck decides to joke around by imitating his dead wife and claiming he "betrayed" her. Larry, unsurprisingly, isn't amused.

* [[MightyWhitey Mighty Straighty]]: Two straight guys are the only ones standing up to bigots at a party, in spite of all the gay guests there. The two guys later becomes gay icons.
** Of course, in real life, Westboro Baptist, the group this film is clearly parodying, explicitly want people to break the law to get at them. The entire clan is full of practicing lawyers and they would immediately file a lawsuit and reap the publicity of taking an angry LGBT individual or supporter to court. Chuck punching the preacher out as he does in the film would actually be a major ''setback.''

* BlackLikeMe: Chuck is a very casual homophobe, happy to toss around words like "faggot" and having offensive, stereotypical ideas of what gay people are like judging by his attempts at impersonating one. By the end of the movie, he and Larry have had to deal with genuine prejudice over their faked sexuality, and he admits how ignorant he was.
