* TalentDouble: Averted. Everyone sang and played their own instruments, as is clear from the fact that none of them are much good. Special kudos to Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Paul, who despite being right-handed learned to play left-handed rock & roll guitar very well.

* FireForgedFriends: This is the story of how teenage John and Paul came to be these.



* HairTriggerTemper: John develops this over the course of the film, on account of the crap he goes through. Dramatised when he beats up Pete at [[spoiler: Julia's wake]] and Paul chases him outside and challenges him to punch him instead. John does exactly that.
