* LiteralMinded: Max's wish forces Fletcher to either be literal about almost everything, or specify that he's ''not'' being literal. For example, Fletcher calls his boss "a worthless steaming pile of cow dung" and has to add on the tag "figuratively speaking," and when a homeless man asks Fletcher if he ''can'' spare some change, Fletcher has to answer "Yes, I could." When the homeless man asks if he ''will'' spare some, Fletcher is able to say no.

Added DiffLines:

* PrenupBlowup: The main case involves a GoldDigger attempting to get half of her husband's assets, despite the fact that the prenup he had her sign before marriage stipulated that, if she was unfaithful, she gets nothing. The husband's case seems ironclad, and there is even an audio recording of the wife having sex with her lover. The protagonist is an AmoralAttorney representing her who is unable to lie for one day (thanks to a wish made by his son) and, thus, can't win the case in his normal manner (he can't even ask a question that he knows will be answered by a lie). Interestingly, the husband was willing to settle for a decent sum of money despite the prenup in order to spare their children the unfortunate experience, but the wife wanted more. The protagonist wins the case by sheer chance, when he discovers that the wife was underage when she got married but lied about it. Thus, the prenup is invalid, and the wife is granted half of the assets. Then the protagonist realizes the mistake he made when he sees the wife trying to continue the battle by demanding full custody of the kids, despite the fact that she doesn't care about them, while her ex-husband is a loving father, all to get extra money from child support payments.
** At the beginning, it is the protagonist who convinces the wife to fight the prenup in court, claiming that her husband was the one who drove her into the arms of another man. The film makes it pretty clear, though, that nothing of the sort happened.
