* {{Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy}}: Luck and reflexes can only explain so much... * {{Law Enforcement Inc}}: Premise of the film is that an irresponsible young man inherits his brother's San Francisco Patrol Special Police franchise. * {{Mood Whiplash}}: The opening scene is happy, then fades to drama. About one third of the way through it becomes almost slapstick with the poor partner of George... Veering into a a dramatic comedy. Then, once the black comedy gets comfortable, the final two scenes happen. Wear a helmet. * {{Precision F Strike}}: George Kuff's partner launches into a heavily bleeped tirade spoofing profanity bleeps (every swear word is covered with a different sound), culminating in [[TakeThat a very loud and unbleeped ''"FUCK YOU!"'']]
