** The differences in the three timelines are caused by various minor events that cumulatively slow down or hurry Lola's journey.
*** The main reason why the final run winds up being successful can be attributed to Lola leaping over the punk and his dog on her way down the stairs, causing her to get out of the building earlier.

* MagicCountdown: None of the 20-minute runs actually last 20 minutes in film time (counting from when Lola starts running from her room to the moment the clock strikes noon). The first run takes almost exactly 15 minutes, and the second a little more than 16. The last run takes about 18 and a half.

** They may have mistaken her for a hostage/bystander since she had no weapons [[spoiler: due to dropping her gun inside]] or thought she was part of the cleaning staff due to coming out with a trashbag in hand (said trashbag holding the stolen money in it).
* RealTime: Although the 20-minute runs don't last that long, this trope occurs when the time actually matters. In the first run where the clock is constantly being referenced, the last 3 minutes of the clock take 2 minutes and 51 seconds to run. The last minute takes about 63 seconds.
** In the next two runs, the time doesn't matter quite as much. The last 3 minutes take 1 minute and 50 seconds in the second run, and 3 minutes and 48 seconds in the last run.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: The first loop, wherein Manni obtains the money by robbing others, ends with Lola's death. The second loop, wherein Lola obtains the money by robbing others, ends with Manni's death. Only the last loop, in which both Lola and Manni obtain the money on their own through honest means, ends safely for both of them. Unfortunately they both happen to work as professional criminals, so at the end of the day they're still living immoral lives and likely learned nothing from the experience.

* {{Jerkass}}: Lola's father. In the first loop, he refuses to give Lola the money she needs to save Manni's life (rather worryingly seemingly not knowing who Manni is despite Lola having been his girlfriend for over a year), instead telling her to go home and go to bed, reveals rather coldly that he's leaving Lola and her mother to be with his mistress, and that [[FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo he's not really Lola's father]]. before ordering the security guard to throw her out. Just before TheReveal, Lola even calls him a jerk. In the second loop, he tells Lola to get a job when she needs the money to save Manni, and smacks Lola in the face for insulting his mistress.
