* ExcusePlot: The reason Charlie and Irene are on the run is because there's... uh, well, Dickie did ''something'', or some things, mob-related, that Irene may or may not know about or have seen, and he has connections to the cops so they can't be trusted and... yeah, the movie is just an excuse for Jim Carrey to go berserk as Charlie and Hank.

* HateSink: Chanté. He picks a fight with Charlie because he just happened to say "you people" to a black guy, [[DisproportionateRetribution going as far as to attack him with nunchaku]]. He then sleeps with Charlie's new wife Layla, not even bothering with protection since she gave birth to black triplets. He then takes Layla and leaves his kids with Charlie. His attempts to [[PlayingTheVictimCard play the victim card]] [[FreudianExcuse due to his race and dwarfism]] only make him come across as [[ItsAllAboutMe bitter]] [[ManipulativeBastard and manipulative]]. If there was ever somebody who should get some of Hank's wrath, it's him.

* WhatTheHellTownspeople: Pretty much the entire city (except for his sons and maybe the force) treats Charlie like dirt. A little girl even tells Charlie that her father told her that he was a joke and she did not have to listen to him. You can't help but cheer when he finally snaps and slams the guys car through the barber shop and still gives him a ticket or dunks that smart mouth little girl. It's unclear whether or not the people still treat him badly (or what the girl's parents did), especially after Hank gave what's coming to them.

* HeroicAlbino: Casper is set up as an EvilAlbino who murdered his entire family. That isn't quite true. [[spoiler:When Charlie and Irene ditch Casper with a flimsy excuse, it appears that Casper is going to pursue and kill them. However, at the films climax, Casper ends up saving Charlie by killing the bad guy with a lawn dart. It's later revealed that Casper lied about murdering his family because he was intimidated by Charlie who was a paranoid schizophrenic. Turns out his family just moved to Arizona. "I mean look at me, I wouldn't last two days in the sun".]]
