* DownToTheLastPlay: Hugely averted. [[spoiler:Whit is taken out of the race very early, and Dennis severely injured, and the rest of the marathon is spent limping in last place, [[ImplacableMan determined to finish]].]] All of which makes Jake's "[[CompletelyMissingThePoint dad, you won!]]" utterly heartwarming.

* AdultFear: [[spoiler:Libby and Dennis panic when Jake has run away. Gordon is also pretty concerned when Dennis tells him. One could say that because Dennis is a ManChild for much of the film, this is the moment where he grows up and forces him to face his problems instead of running away from them.]]



* FreezeFrameBonus: At various points in the film, you can see graffiti depicting Dennis's state at that moment. One is of a man clecnhing his fists and striking a pose on a wall, seen behind Dennis during the TrainingMontage as he runs in and out of bollards. Another obvious one is after [[spoiler:Dennis and Gordon fight]]. Dennis runs around the corner and clearly visible on the wall behind him is of a man hanging from a tree, because at that point, he's at his lowest ebb in the film.

** The always cheerful and kind Mr. G is devastated when Dennis drops out of the race, and delivers a seriously good one - basically *in tears* - to get Dennis to pull himself together.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: In large televised marathons amateur and professional runners start from different points and the elite runners who are likely to be in with a chance to win start from their own area so Dennis and Whit wouldn't have been on camera to steal the thunder from the elite athletes with their sprinting away from the start and jockeying for position.

* ActorAllusion: David Walliams' cameo is similar to his ''LittleBritain'' character who goes into shops asking for oddly specific things.



* CameraAbuse: Dennis "hits the wall" and bounces off the camera.



* EnforcedMethodActing: in the scene where Creator/SimonPegg and Hank Azaria are talking in the locker room, Simon's shocked reaction to Hank dropping his towel was very real. Apparently, Hank was supposed to wear a modesty patch over his genitals, but it didn't fit, so he did the scene without it.
