* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Subverted. When the Pears are leaving the Barbie Museum and the Neo-Nazis ask them why, they explain they have a variety of non-Jewish activities on their agenda, which is almost another way of saying upfront that they aren't Jewish, despite the fact that none of the neo-Nazis even ''asked'' them about their race or religion in the first place. The confused look on each tour guide's face confirms that there's something not quite right about the Pears' explanation for their sudden departure.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: First of all the Heart Courier is a little ''too'' eager to take a little peek at the human heart he's transporting. Then it takes him next to no time to consider killing a 'drifter' and cutting out his heart to replace it when it's lost. And about as much time to consider Enrico as that drifter. He looks pretty disappointed when Enrico gets away too...

* KarmaHoudini: Notwithstanding all the hell each set of contestants has to go through along the way to Silver City, [[spoiler: [[ShaggyDogStory only to get there and end up not getting to keep the money they tried so hard to get to]]]], none of the characters are ever punished for the crimes they commit along the way. This includes, but is not limited to, speeding and reckless driving in general; the Cody brothers' sabotaging the airport radar system, vandalizing the Pears' van in the Barbie Museum parking lot, and later stealing a monster truck from a monster truck rally; the Pears' subsequently stealing Adolf Hitler's Mercedes Benz upon discovering the damage done to their vehicle; Merrill and Vera Baker stealing a rocket car on public display; Tracy's pursuit of Shawn in the helicopter chase scene, followed by her and Nick [[RefugeInAudacity siphoning gas from a police car]]; Owen impersonating a bus driver and forcing the real bus driver to give him his clothes as if to leave him stranded, and Enrico Pollini stowing away on a train. [[spoiler: Unlike the contestants in its [[ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld predecessor]], the contestants in ''this'' film are ultimately ''praised'' for their apparent generosity at the benefits concert.]]
