* TitleDrop: Sort of. At the end we see that Remy called his story ''The Repossesion Mambo'', which is [[MythologyGag the name of the book the movie is based on]].

* ComedicSociopathy / ForTheEvulz: Jake and Remy go to "check up" on someone who has fallen behind on his payments and to remind him he's got 3 days left. Before doing so they make a bet on whether he'll run or not [[spoiler: and when he does, they laugh and joke that he's going to need a new heart due to panic]]

In the future humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don't pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to repossess your organs... with no concern for your comfort or survival. Former soldier Remy is one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement... as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his [[IncrediblyLamePun heart's no longer in the job]]. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake, to track him down.

* DevelopmentHell: Both the book and the film suffered through it. The book was written in 1996 but wasn't published until 2008. Meanwhile, the manuscript had circulated in Hollywood and a film version was greenlighted. The film was made between 2007-2008 but spent two years on the shelf.
