* ChainsawGood: Zig-zagged. It gets jammed by hair rather easily, but then Daniel complains it's a cheap piece of crap.

* NeverTrustATrailer: Part of the reason for the above controversy (under DudeNotFunny) is that the trailers for the film made it appear as if the Sun Gym Gang were pulling off some wacky heist against an unscrupulous crime boss. The movie, however, does not present the [[VillainProtagonist protagonists]] on the whole as even remotely sympathetic, portrays the victims sympathetically and has the Sun Gym Gang do some fairly gruesome things.

Daniel is a mainstay of the Miami personal fitness community, very proud of what he does but he has to work hard to make a living. Seeing a wealthy client of his, Victor Kershaw (Creator/TonyShalhoub), and knowing some of the underhanded tricks he pulled to gain his fortune, Daniel begins a plan to steal his money and brings in friend Paul to help him accomplish it. They prove themselves wholly incompetent, as even though they get Kershaw's money they were [[IronButtMonkey unable to kill him]] and his story is so outrageous the police don't give him a second thought.

* AntiVillain: Paul Doyle. He didn't want to be part of the kidnapping at all but was persuaded by Daniel and Noel into doing so and felt guilty the entire time.

* DeconstructiveParody: Of TheAmericanDream. The film even has most of the visual excess (shot like some of the cheesier music videos of the day) during scenes where Daniel discusses what he thinks the dream is.

* OccamsRazor[=/=] HanlonsRazor: The sheer outlandish premise of Kershaw's story leads everyone to assume the more believable scenario, a drunken psychotic episode-- no one could be both that cruel and that inept.
